Melissa Fenton

Melissa Fenton is a freelance writer and adjunct faculty librarian living in the Sunshine State. A mom to four sons, she spends a majority of her time buying food, watching sports, running marathons, and waxing poetic about raising boys into gentlemen in a modern world. A crafty, book hoarding (and carb loving) girl at heart, you can also find her wandering around yarn stores and book stores, and forever in search of the perfect glazed donut. Find her writing all over the Internet, but her work mostly on the dinner table.
