Melissa Glisan

Chalk Hill, Pennsylvania, United States

From the time I first held a pencil I wanted to write, so naturally I became an engineer. No, I am not kidding. Everyone made me think my dream was just that, a dream, so I went to college for a "real" degree. As you can guess I was miserable. A few years of drafting and design pushed me to reading the classifieds where I saw an ad for freelance writer that screamed at me. That was six years ago and I finally felt free working the news desk of the local paper. It helped me learn valuable skills and I met a wealth of truly interesting folk.

I've been published in a number of places online and off. My first two poems appeared in a magazine now defunct. Since then I've had a number of them appear on Justs Roux's website. My short story "The Watermelon Riot" is currently featured on for their summer selection series. I've also had a horror story appear in the pages of Insidious Reflections magazine, titled "Song of the Nighthawk."

My largest accomplishment to date was the release of my ebook, "'Ware Wishes," through Venus Press. It's an erotic romance, stress on the romance. I strive to be sensually creative and tasteful. Towards the end of October, my novella "Memory and Dream" will debut with Venus as part of their All Hallow Eve series.
