• Melissa Miles serves as co-ARA for the Southern Breeze region of SCBWI, as well as local liaison for the Savannah area. She lives in Georgia with her husband of 31 years and is the proud mom of two wonderful young adults. Her first children’s book, Jeremiah Justice Saves the Day, features a superhero with special needs. Sales of the book go to the nonprofit, Superhero Success Foundation, to help raise awareness of kids with special needs, donate books (through schools, libraries, hospitals and a camp for kids with tracheostomies), and scholarships. Melissa is a pediatric nurse and a certified K-12 educator.


  • I write because I love it. It is my outlet. I can’t sing, dance, sculpt, or play an instrument. But I can tell a story. In fact, I come from a long line of storytellers who have influenced me, and created a love for weaving together words that entertain and inspire. 

    Just as I’ve wanted to make a difference in my careers as a registered nurse and teacher, I want to write stories that have a positive impact on readers. I welcome constructive criticism and meeting other writers to share this journey with me.
