Melanie grew up in Bedford, Texas, and then moved a few hours south to attend the University of Texas, where she studied Radio-TV-Film, Plan II Honors (don’t ask), and German. She is beyond ecstatic to join the Simplebulldog team, and she doesn’t think it was a coincidence that they “happened” to be seeking a screenwriter just as she was mentally preparing to use her shiny new screenwriting degree to secure a barista job.
Her best-friend-slash-husband, Austin, works for National Instruments, doing engineery/mathy/computery things on a daily basis that Melanie only pretends to understand. He is also much more domestic than his wife could ever dream of being, and he handles her sub-par sous chef skills with an enormous amount of grace.
Among other things, Melanie is obsessed with Jesus, food, lists, dresses, cats, lists, quotes, languages, and lists.
