Hi! I'm Melissa Treglia, an aspiring (but broke) writer from small-town New Jersey. In 2016, I had the good fortune to be awarded for making the top ten of the NAMI New Jersey poetry contest (under my legal name). Currently, in addition to continuing my poetry, I am also returning to my long-time passion for short stories. I also write fan fiction, so I can keep my skills sharp in between writing my original works. I've completed a vampire novel, titled GRIFFIN UNBOWED, and it was released on August 6, 2019 (you can buy it as an ebook or paperback on Amazon). I'm also in the process of writing its sequel. To sum up: I'm trying to make an online presence for myself and get my name out there, and I need your help to do it. So please, donate a few bucks and tell your friends, so I can spend the rest of my time doing the thing I love so much: writing awesome fiction.
