Melody is an editor, writer, and librarian. Her driving purpose is serving people in different communities in their exploration of their world. Whether through social media, books, blogs, apps, self-publishing, or curated digital exhibits, she wants to be there to guide this exploration.
She is pro-Oxford comma, except when dictated otherwise by a style guide. Also, she calls it the "series comma" because she lives in the U.S.
Favorite un-attributable quote: People need stories more than they need food.
