Work hard, I always believed, and someday I'd fulfill my very American dream of owning my own home. Alas, hefty student loans and other insane expenses tore asunder my dream of ever owning property... Until now.
I am Melissa Banigan. I've been many things under the sun, but am currently a single mom raising an amazing kid in Brooklyn, writing novels and short stories, and working on some art (canvases and paper). I also, under the moniker melifera, produce off-the-cusp embroidered clothing and bags.
