Meet the Author
Melissa Banczak has lived all over the country, thanks to her now-retired military spouse. She currently resides in Florida, where she’s a reasonable driving distance to roller coasters in the Orlando area. An unexpected encounter with her daughter’s nine foot boa, Strawberry Margarita, led to the idea for the first book in her June Nash MisAdventure series. In a former life she was a literary agent working mainly with screenplays. When she’s not writing, she and her husband run. Slowly. She accidentally completed her first marathon in 2017, when she didn’t hear her husband ask if she’d like to stop at 13.1. She would have.

Will go again next visit. #disneyworldorlando #mickeysrunawayrailway #disneyrides #disneyworldA much needed day away from the computer. Anyone else a carousel fan? #disneyworld #playinghookey #dayinthesun #magickingdomparkYikes! A throwback to me in that horrid white stuff. (Almost 4 yrs ago) Brrr. I don’t even like photos of frozen water droplets. #summerallyearlong #longliveflorida #sunshinenotsnowMaking edits to the last chapter of How to Square Your Grouper. Woo plus hoo. Then off to see Knives Out for a third time. Do you go see something in theaters multiple times? #iamwriting #knivesoutmovie #whatareyouwriting #writinglifeI hit number one! I’m so excited.
