About Melinda:


Melinda is mother to a strapping teenage son and a beautiful and entertaining teenage daughter. She had been a freelance writer for a variety of companies until five years ago, when her writing took a decidedly maternal turn. Her children were simply giving her too much humbling and hilarious material to let it go to waste.

 Melinda is co-author of Mothering From Scratch: Finding the Best Parenting Style for You and Your Family (Bethany House, 2015), available on Amazon and bookstores nationwide. She blogs at Motheringfromscratch.com
