About Melanie Tito
Melanie Tito (née Tan) has been reading and writing since she was six, and still enjoys words. She loves the way they allow us to soar, to dive, to travel through space and time—from anywhere.
Based in New Zealand, she is a mother to three children under the age of four, all born premature, who—along with her husband and faith in God— largely inspired her books "How to love with a healing heart" and "Calm Elegance for the Mama at Home".
She is also the author of "Write from the Start", a quick dose of inspiration for writers, and "Twenty-six", a collection of vignettes and poems.
