About Me

Hey there! How’s it going?

For those searching for some inspiration and laughs,  for anyone who is a connoisseur of books, or for those who have a love of music and games, this is the place for you!


A Bit About Me: My name is Melissa and I am a 22 year-old coffee-obsessed, video-game-addicted, writer who longs for travel and telekinetic super powers. Currently, I’m living in the city of Montreal as a freelance writer and game blogger. I also recently graduated college with a degree in literature! Ever since I can remember, I’ve always had a love for learning and creating anything art related but my focus was always on writing. My high school years were spent primarily in the library with my nose in a book and headphones in my ears. These days, I enjoy keeping busy but if I have down time, I’m usually playing through a video game on my PS4, hacking away at my manuscript or playing a game of soccer (because I can’t stand to sit still for too long)!

I love meeting and collaborating with new people –  in my life, reading and writing have always been the way that I connect with others, so I started this blog in hopes of doing just that. I started off working as a journalist for four years while I was in college. But since then, I’ve made the jump from journalism to creative writing and now I’m pursuing the path that makes me happiest – blending my love for games and writing.

In the past, I’ve had the honor of writing for some pretty cool places that I’d like to give a shout-out to, including The Vocalist MagazineMTL Blog and Gameluster. Currently, I’m also working with the really awesome team over at N3rdabl3!
