A friend asked me once how I chose my pen name. I told her the following: "Melissa, because when people mix up my first name, it's the most common goof up. Snark, because it amuses me. A) I love the word 'snarky' and B) I love Lewis Carroll."
an individual, I'm sarcastic, stubborn and blunt to a fault. I have a
strange sense of humor and I like to laugh (usually at my husband or
children), but also at myself. I'm not particularly extroverted,
although I do enjoy time with my family and close friends a great deal.
the moment, I'm a stay at home mom who writes in my spare time. I've
got a B.S. from Arizona State University in Business, and I've worked a
variety of different jobs, including as a medical device documentation
specialist, a technical writer, and an auto liability adjuster.
live in the San Francisco East Bay of Northern California with my
husband, three kids, and three cats. My hobbies include roleplaying,
cooking and reading.
I maintain a blog, which I update regularly at http://melissasnark.blogspot.com/
I enjoy hearing from my readers, so please drop me a line at MelissaSnark at gmail dot com.
