About me

Introduction My name's Melyssa. I go by Lyssa. Or Mom. Or Michelle. Or Laryssa's Sister. I have three kids. They're pretty great. I like them quite a bit. I have one husband. Also, a nifty dude. I read books. I write books. I drink coffee and red wine, depending on whether it's a.m. or p.m. I have a dog and three chickens. I prefer country over city and I'd rather hang out at a library than hang out at a club. I homeschool. I was homeschooled. I write for Home Educating Family magazine and for MaryJane's Farm magazine. I don't like being photographed, spiders, sweet pickles, staying up past 11, snow in April. Or October. Snow in October, that is. October I love. Unless there's snow. I used to dance back when I was flexible and looked good in tights (those days are gone). Now I teach ballet. It's a lot like herding cats, except they wear tutus and need frequent potty breaks. I wrote a book. Did I already say that?
