Why Write?

It allows illumination, a pleasant escape from the neurosis which encases my mind from time to time.

What do you write?

I like to delve in everything. Currently, however, I am working on a children's picture book and would like input on the direction I am headed, if any direction at all.


My birth name is Melissa Gardner, my maiden name is Melissa May - I prefer the name chance has opted me, Melissa May, over the name which fate had predetermined.

What Melissa M. is saying about this Meetup Group

I attended for the first time last night, and I must say, what a wonderful and diverse group of people. I felt right at home. <3
