rgz Newsflash: Melissa Walker in GL


Shout out for our own diva Melissa Walker for her recent interview in Girls' Life Magazine!

Interviewer Samantha Davis asks:

SD: So did you want to be an author when you grew up, too?

MW: Yes, I totally did! I wasn’t sure it was practical, but it was my goal. I wrote for school publications, then interned at a magazine while I was in college, and became an editor. All that prepared me to… return to my teenage diaries and write books! It’s a dream come true.

Head on over and read Melissa's advice on how to be an author. It's wonderful!
