She has over fifteen years experience as a developmental editor, writer, and content director for nonfiction texts and online courses. Melissa is a member of Sisters in Crime, the SinC-Guppy chapter, the Short Mystery Fiction Society, and the Grand Rapids Region Writers Group (GRRWG), as well as the International Coach Federation.

When she's not in front of her computer screen, Melissa is off hiking with her (sometimes hell)hound.
