Melissa Pouliot, described by one of her children as a book writing machine, likes to think of herself as a word artist. Her local newspaper published her first story Santa's Elf when she was eight years old. Her early childhood stories about princesses, fairies and goblins inspired by authors such as Enid Blyton and May Gibbs evolved to teenage soap operas inspired by Sweet Valley High and crime mysteries inspired by Trixie Beldon. While studying a Commerce university degree, she wrote her first unpublished piece for friends and family based on when she worked a governess in outback Queensland. After an epiphany on a train to Sydney, she changed her university studies from numbers to words. She returned to the harsh outback Queensland heat to start her journalism career before moving south to the flat, arid landscape of Western Victoria to work in the busy newsroom of a tri-weekly paper. When her first child was six months old she started her own media PR company, the first of its type in Western Victoria. Through her journalism career and her own business, she has written stories on just about every topic. Her stories about people are widely recognised as her true heart and she has published several non-fiction books. Write About Me is Melissa's debut fiction novel and a #1 Amazon bestseller. It is inspired by the disappearance of her cousin Ursula Barwick in 1987. She is the only Australian author who is the family member of a missing person tackling the complexities of missing through fiction. As a result of her books, Detectives have formed Taskforce Hemingway to investigate the circumstances surrounding Ursula's disappearance. The Australian Federal Police have also endorsed her novels for their role in raising awareness for missing persons. In 2014 she released the first in the Detective Rhiannon McVee Crime Mystery series, FIND ME, a year later WHEN YOU FIND ME, then in 2016 YOU'LL NEVER FIND ME. She can't wait to write the book entitled FOUND ME. Melissa is passionate about talking positively and proactively about missing persons and raising awareness for child and teen safety as an Ambassador for the Daniel Morcombe Foundation's Day for Daniel.
