Melissa Payne lives in Hamilton, ON, and has been writing since she can remember. She has often been criticized for being “too wordy”, but embraces it all the same. She believes words carry a great deal of weight, whether spoken, written or in the holding back of them. Language is an art; a window into the imagination, and the written language is where she tastes a bit of home. Her hope is that these small fragments of a simple life would inspire a greater exploration of the world and your spirituality.
