(Be sure to read to the end) Before we get started, let me tell you a bit about myself and my writing. I was born and raised in a small town in Michigan. (Wanna know where? Hold up your right, palm facing you, and hold it in the shape of a mitten. You see that padded part just below the thumb? Now see the crease your hand makes? I’m at the tip of that crease. It’s about half way between Flint and Lansing. Did you do it? LOL) Okay, back to being serious. I have been with and married to my high school sweetie for a total of 21 years now (married for 17). We have three children – 2 boys who are 14 and almost 13; 1 daughter who will be 10 soon. We are proud homeschool parents and so glad God has blessed us with the means to be able to keep our children home. We are active during the school year with basketball and dance classes. I am so glad that that part of the year has come to an end. I am a retired bridal consultant as well. I miss working in the industry, but the occasional friend or relative that becomes engaged knows where to find me. I have no problem filling that need for a consultant from time to time. (It also gives me up to date material for my “Brides of Promise” Novella series.) I started writing August of 2014 after sharing a story that God laid on my heart with an old friend. “What God Brings Together” was the result and was published in December 2014. The stories have flowed like a waterfall since. I just wish I had more time to write it all down. I have 3 titles under my name on Amazon, and I’ll be adding another soon. I also blog with book reviews and thoughts.” – new subscribers are entered into monthly drawings for Amazon gift cards. melissawardwell_author – on Instagram – Follow my Amazon page
