Melita's dreams of becoming a hard-hitting journalist were dashed when, having completed her BA in Mass Communications (with majors in Journalism and Marketing), she discovered writing news stories about politics, sport and education didn't tickle her creative bone.
Upon stints eating her way through Bangkok as a food writer, and writing her way through New York while moonlighting as a dog walker, Melita thought she'd try something 'different' by studying graphic design. A career in advertising soon ensued. And so, while this pint-sized, award-winning, art-directing copywriter is not one to fit into a box, she ticks as many as possible.
Outside her day job, Melita continues her love for storytelling by writing about the weird and fascinating people who inspire her. Other interests include attempting to align her book-reading and book-buying habits, the odd dabble in hand lettering, and translating into human-speak the deep inner thoughts of her dog Banjo.
