Melissa Brayden received her bachelor’s degree in film production and speech communication from Baylor University. After ten years of teaching and directing high school theatre, she is currently at work on her Master of Fine Arts in directing at Texas State University and enjoying the ride.
Melissa has recently fallen down the rabbit hole and rediscovered her love of creative writing. She is the three-time Goldie award–winning author of Waiting in the Wings, Heart Block, and How Sweet It Is, all published by Bold Strokes Books. Her fourth novel, Kiss the Girl, is due out in July. She is happily at work on her fifth.
For personal enjoyment, Melissa spends time with family, friends, and her Jack Russell terriers. She tries to check out the New York theatre scene several times a year. While a reluctant patron of the treadmill, she enjoys hitting a tennis ball around in nice weather. Coffee is her very best friend.
