Melissa has loved music of all kinds since she was old enough to break dance as the flower girl at her aunt's wedding. Since then she has always moved to her own beat, listening to the kinds of music she likes, whether it was popular at the time or not.
She has played flute since third grade, sung in choirs of many varieties, and is now learning guitar.
She's working as a web designer in Philly, and writing fiction and songs of fantasy.
