Melissa grew up in Australia and after completing studies in Law, set off on an adventure. After a year’s layover in London in 2002, she went on to Paris, France, where she has remained ever since. She has published short stories in online journals: Pithead Chapel and Paris Lit Up. She has a couple of completed full-length novels in her drawer and is working on a third. Writing is her passion but she’s very good at drinking wine and reading.
