Melissa Brayden received her bachelor's degree in film production and speech communication from Baylor University. She currently works full time as a theater director at the performing arts center of one of the largest high schools in the state of Texas, a job she completely enjoys. Recently, she's fallen down the rabbit hole and rediscovered her love for creative writing. Melissa is married and working really hard at remembering to do the dishes. For personal enjoyment, she spends time with her Jack Russell terriers and checks out the NYC theater scene several times a year. She considers herself a reluctant patron of the treadmill, but thoroughly enjoys hitting a tennis ball around in nice weather. Coffee is her very best friend.
