Melody Bakeeff is a prime example of graduating from 'the school of hard knocks.' After running off to a college she was completely un-prepared for (following friends is bad, children!) she came back to her non-native state of Florida with her now-husband, Scott. He went on to graduate ITT (but thus far no commercial spot for him) and she has spent the better part of the last (nearly) twenty years trying to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up.
Since she has no immediate plans to actually grow up, playing with her own daughter, Anastasia, provides a good excuse to avoid the unsavory practice. While on the journey she re-discovered her love for writing and random internet folks seem to agree she has a knack for it. So in between working on the family business with her tech-oriented hubby she tries to find as much time as possible to get her words out into the Universe.
