About the Author:
Melissa Darby grew up in the small town of Atwater, Ca. She began writing poetry at the age of 15. Finding inspiration from heartbreak, love, music, and life. The free verse poetry that she discovered, helped her get through some of the toughest times. In, 2006 she had an urge to write a story. About a group of friends in high school. Based on the town and friends she grew up with. It was called, A Teenage Life published in 2007. A Grown Up Life, the sequel followed shortly after in 2009. Unfortunately, the publisher she went through never gave her an editor and was published in the original form.
After years of writers block and never being able to get past chapter 4 in every story. She decided it was time to re-write A Teenage Life & A Grown Up Life. Giving what the story deserved, an editor, and a new name. She is currently in the process of rewriting and will be done soon.
Just recently she published 4 poetry books. Never Had A Chance, The Girl, Numb, and Waiting For Me. Poetry going back to 2006. They are a reflection of her and hopes that her words can help someone.
