My name is Melissa Wray. I have always loved reading. I grew up about 600m from the local library and spent a lot of time there. Some of my favourite authors growing up were Judy Blume, Enid Blyton, John Marsden, Ann M. Martin and Francine Pascal.
I’ve been lucky enough to live and travel overseas and see some amazing places. Carnivale in Venice, Italy where the venetian masks and costumes are exquisitely beautiful. La Tomatina in Bunol, Spain where the tomato throwing festival is not for the fainthearted. Also Mt.Sinai, Egypt where I began climbing the mountain at 2 in the morning to reach the top in time for the most spectacular sunrise.
As a primary school teacher, I am passionate about encouraging my students to enjoy reading and writing. As a mum, I love creating stories aloud with my kids and reading to them. Nothing thrills me more when I see them reading for pleasure.
My writing is constantly evolving and I am looking forward to sharing my stories and spending many more hours creating new ones.
