How to Get Published, Sunday, May 7 at 5:00pm, Mt. View Mausoleum

Melanie Romero is a trilingual writer born and raised in Orange, CA. It was during childhood weekend trips to Randy’s $1-a-book stall at the OC Market Place that she discovered a passion for reading and, eventually, writing. Today, she serves as Editor at Lil’ Libros and has written two children’s books, Amor de colores and J is for Janucá, under the publisher. In her free time, she can be found indulging in challah and getting lost among the shelves of independent bookstores.
