things I'm thinking, places I'm traveling, books I'm reading, music I'm listening to, & whatever else I feel like writing.

About

My name is Melissa.

As a kid, I escaped into stories. When I got tired of reading, I wrote some of my own.

When I was in high school one of my teachers told me I was a good writer and asked me to consider pursuing that in college.

In 2009 I graduated from a small liberal arts university in Grand Rapids, Michigan with a Bachelor of Arts in English/writing and a minor in journalism.

Now I work as a copywriter at an education group in Grand Rapids.
