Hi there. My name is Melissa. And in spite of the fact that I had never read any of Dickens’ works until this project, I do read a lot of other things. I’m also a technical writer and illustrator, wife, cat owner and auntie. I like to read, write, sing, ride my bike, and attempt to grow vegetables and flowers in the too short Calgarian summer. I don’t like country music or Brussels sprouts. I like Star Trek and cheesecake. I love to read.
