Why I write
Melissa-Jane Pouliot

Why I writeI am an Australian author and have always loved to write. My early childhood stories about princesses, fairies and goblins inspired by authors such as Enid Blyton and May Gibbs evolved to teenage soap operas and adventure stories inspired by Trixie Beldon, Sweet Valley High and my own experiences. While studying a Commerce university degree, I wrote my first unpublished piece for friends and family based on when I worked a governess on a sheep station in outback Queensland. My stories about people are widely recognised as my true heart and I have published several non-fiction books. Surrounded by brilliant blue ocean and beautiful national park on the NSW Far South Coast, I write every single day.'Write About Me', inspired by a true family tradegy, is my first fiction novel. It has reached #1 on Amazon and is attracting widespread attention from television, print and online media - taking me into a whole new world of fiction writing. I am currently working on my second novel.
