Melinda Taliancich Falgoust is an author, illustrator,  elementary educator, and working actor on both stage and screen.  She often reaches into her actor’s “bag-of-tricks” to introduce a cast of colorful and quirky characters who help bring her books and presentations to life!  Her work has garnered five-star reviews and awards around the world.
