Melissa Zaroski was bitten by the writing bug as a child when she began to write short stories about fantasy lands and her own experiences. She always loved to escape real life and immerse herself in imaginary stories. As a teenager, she would write short stories and poems, mostly to express her teenage angst! In 2009 she gained an opportunity to write for Examiner.com. She writes columns on Alexander Skarsgard, Joe Manganiello, Tom Wisdom, and Kevin Alejandro. Melissa likes to read in her spare time; mostly Charlaine Harris, J. K. Rowling, and Sophie Kinsella. She also took up crocheting and has become a blanket-making fool! She likes to go ballroom dancing with her husband and catch up on their favorite TV shows, True Blood, The Vampire Diaries, Downton Abbey, Mr. Selfridge, Orange is the New Black, and Mad Men.
