Melissa Stein (born June 4, 1986) is an American fashion photographer and writer from Los Angeles, CA. 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. This then inspired her to write her own stories. Melissa was first published when she was 11 in a local newspaper, and had her first story bound when she was 12 as part of the Author’s program at her school.
Today Melissa runs her own photography business and can be found carrying a camera around her neck most of the time. Yet in her spare time she writes articles for blogs, magazines, e-zines, journals, and has 5 trunked manuscripts that she hopes to take out someday.
