Melissa Gouty is an award-winning teacher, speaker, and entrepreneur who’s been putting words together since she could hold a pen and making friends with book characters since she could read. A long-running newspaper columnist, copywriter, and blogger, Melissa created www.LiteratureLust.com, a website for readers, writers, and thinkers with an insatiable desire for the written word.. Melissa recently turned her passion for writing into a full-time pursuit. Within nine months, she had given birth to her debut book, The Magic of Ordinary, a heart-warming, heart-wrenching memoir about growing up with a father who made life magical.
When she isn’t reading, writing, or spending time inside her own head, Melissa lives with her husband, Bill, and their dog, Ella, in a Midwestern country home where they garden, entertain, and love life. If they’re not there, they’re traveling the country in their camper having adventures that would make her Daddy proud.
