Melissa J. Moores
Bradford, Ontario - Canada
Stories and storytelling, reading, writing, and the crafting of ideas have all been an integral part of Melissa's life from a very young age. After a 10 year career where she began teaching in the elementary division, Melissa has spent the majority of her time teaching English and Drama at the high school level. But running the Creative Writing Club after school and writing one act plays for school Arts Festivals never really allowed her explore, to the fullest extent, her innate passion for stories and their creation.
Now, having taken time off work to raise her young son, Melissa is branching out on her own not only by providing tutoring services for local families, but expanding her writing horizons with an online Superhero Literary Photo-digest Series called The Adventures of the Ivancic Superheroes, finishing the first book Time's Tempest in her sci-fi/fantasy New Adult trilogy The Chronicles of Xannia, and constructing the 1st Annual JUZDIZRTS Author Event in support of budding local authors - with an Emerging Authors Tips & Writing Contest Website to be launched this fall.
It's no wonder she has decided not to return to teaching full time!
With the felxibility she now has as she divides her time between raising her son and developing her new projects - Melissa is finally living her dream.
