Melissa Caruso was born on the summer solstice and went to school in an old mansion with a secret door, but despite this auspicious beginning has yet to develop any superpowers. She wrote her first books in crayon at age four and hasn’t stopped telling stories since.
Growing up by the ocean gave Melissa a hunger for the deep mysteries of wild places, from forests to mountains, and she loves to travel and explore. She’s been chased by a mountain goat, sledded in the crater of an active volcano, and accidentally punched a guy in the Vatican Museum. But some of her favorite journeys occur in a comfy chair with a good book and a cup of tea.
Melissa lives in Massachusetts with her video game designer husband, two superlative daughters, a Labrador, and a pair of cats. She graduated with honors in Creative Writing from Brown University and has an MFA in Fiction from the University of Massachusetts - Amherst.
