Before pursuing her writing career, Melissa was a full-time intermediate school teacher, so has experience interacting with young teens. She's also spoken at several high schools around the country, plus done radio interviews and spoken to writers' groups.
She can talk about writing, publishing, or some of the themes in her books like self-love, self-confidence and what healthy relationships should look like. Her characters all go on journeys of self-discovery and many lessons can be learned from what they experience.
If you'd like her to talk to literacy classes or book clubs, however you can best use her knowledge and experience, then please contact her by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
