Melissa Stein is an American writer from Los Angeles, CA. Born in San Bernardino, California on June 4th 1986. She now resides in Santa Monica, California.
Melissa is a Christian that loves God, her family and anything Linkin Park. She started writing at an early age when she was just eight years old. She would escape and read on her playhouse roof while writing alternate endings or changing complete scenarios to her favorite books. This then inspired her to write her own stories. As of late, Melissa writes poems in her spare time, short stories and is working on her debut novel (W).
ABOUT MY POEMS
My poems are something I did to help me through grief after the passing of Chester Bennington. I started with one poem (Smile) I wrote for him and was going to end it there but realized I had a lot of more to voice. So I wrote another one and now have over 200 poems. It’s more of therapy and an outlet for life. It is now something I really enjoy doing. I hate talking about my feelings so poetry gave me the outlet to release. Like a hidden talent but always in a work in progress stage. It takes me an averaged of two minutes to write my poems. They are intended to be simple reflections of myself and life situations. My relationship with God and how I see life or past experiences. They are rarely edited as I hate editing but like how they are in a raw format. My poem style is free write.
ABOUT MY WRITING
My writing is more focused and centered on life, god, and paranormal experiences. I do not have a specific genre yet but fit into many molds making what I write next unexpected. I have many stories to tell. Some fiction and some true. My writing process for books is a bit slower than my poetry but a very entertaining to read. I have many short stories in the works as well. I am currently working on edits for my debut novel which I hope to have out in 2020.
