Melissa has been writing stories since she could hold a pencil in her hand and she has a deformed, calloused finger to prove it. She began twisting fairy tales in the fifth grade when she wrote a story about George of the Jungle making his way to Neverland. Melissa enjoys writing, making music, reading, baking and running. She lives with her husband, three daughters and cat named Matilda.

I See You  by Julie Lee

If I had to describe this book in one word, it would be "timely." How appropriate to have a book about seeing those around us just when the world asked us to cover our faces. I consider this to be a really short but profound mental health guidebook. ...more

“No sight so sad as that of a naughty child," he began, "especially a naughty little girl. Do you know where the wicked go after death?"

"They go to hell," was my ready and orthodox answer.

"And what is hell? Can you tell me that?"

"A pit full of fire."

"And should you like to fall into that pit, and to be burning there for ever?"

"No, sir."

"What must you do to avoid it?"

I deliberated a moment: my answer, when it did come was objectionable: "I must keep in good health and not die.”

Nope. I am in the process of editing my next novel. I didn't get it done in time... just a bit more polishing before I send it out for publishing.


Melissa Lemon Wow they got their fast! Will you be signing on the 5th again?

Jesse Booth Melissa! I didn't know you finished writing another book! I just saw your copies come into the U of U bookstore! Looks like I'll be snagging that one, too!


Melissa Lemon Thank you!


Branwen Sedai *of the Brown Ajah* Thanks for accepting my friend request! I absolutely LOVED Cinder and Ella! I read it through NetGalley and I'm looking forward to its release so I can buy my own copy! Keep up the great work! :)


Melissa Lemon You, too. I've been to Puyallup and loved it.
