I'm a mom, wife, survivor and Jesus girl. I'm writing my first nonfiction book about domestic abuse survival and I write about the same at my blog melaniespickett.com, aiming to encourage, support, and inspire hope in those who've been through similar pain. I've worked as a Medical Language Specialist for nearly two decades and I'm now concentrating on my writing career. I guest post on other blogs and have been published in online publications. My favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:11 and my current favorite quote is "They call us the dreamers, but we're the ones who never sleep."
