||From her website, Melissa said of her writing:|
"Like most writers I don’t remember a time when I didn’t write. My first memories are playing with words when I was in kindergarten. One of my earliest recollections of my writing, that got me noticed, was when I was in third-grade. I wrote a note to the principal, with all the concern my eight-year-old life could muster, and asked him to give my teacher some time off because she seemed so tired. That little caring note caused quite a ruckus at my grade school. My teacher, as I recall, got in trouble. My parents were called in while the principal interviewed me. Honestly, she just looked like she needed a few days off. It was written for the purest of reasons. I think that day I began to understand the power-of-the-pen, though I am sure I wouldn’t have been able to articulate it quite that way. I do know I was an early, and avid reader, characteristics sometimes (but not always) associated with budding writers."
