About Melissa

I work as a scientist in the field of food science and nutrition research.  Yes, I get paid to think about food.  Life is good.

I am an avid reader and find few things more satisfying than having a stash of books in my to-be-read bookshelf.

I am married to my junior-high sweetheart and we have two children who keep us from thinking we’ve got this whole thing figured out.

About this site

In early 2020 I decided to take a plunge into the intriguing world of self-publishing.  Writing has always been an important part of my life.  My only publications have been in the scientific realm https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=ccs1mEMAAAAJ&hl=en which I realize appeal only a limited crowd!

Writing and self-publishing is a hobby, a side-gig, and a passion project.  My hope is that I am able to construct stories in a way that stimulates thought while entertaining the reader.
