By day Melissa Barlow is an administrative assistant, able to leap tall stacks of paper in a single bound, by night she sits at her desk and writes, dreaming of that day she'll one day be published. She got her start writing picture books, very bad picture books with singing animals and horrible forced rhymes. Nowadays, she's dropped the singing, dancing critters and moved on to the wonderful world of YA. She's the author of Knights of Avalon, as well as the YA Historical Surviving Matewan. Her current projects include a sequel to Knights and the YA dystopian Beautiful Medusa. Feel free to say hi to her on Twitter (@LiteraryMouse) or visit her blog at http://survivingwritingabook.
In addition to writing, I teach preschool, direct two handbell choirs, and I am a Creative Memories Consultant. I also have three children ages seven and under. In other words, I am always bored. I blog sporadically at www.lchardesty.blogspot.com and I tweet @lchardesty.
I'm a 20-something year old Canuckian chick who writes YA Fantasy/Paranormal, along with the occasional recap. Hoping to see my name in print, but until then I'll be typing my little brown fingers off. Contact me at saraholutola(at)gmail(dot)com.
