About the Author
Melinda Kinsman lives near Chester, in the United Kingdom. Her credited co-authors are a team of cuddly toys called the “Top of the Wardrobe Gang”.
Melinda learned to love rhyme from an early age. She enjoyed reading books by Dr.Seuss, and making up her own versions of Nursery Rhymes!
Melinda taught herself to write and illustrate children’s picture books when neck issues stopped her from being able to continue working in a lab as a scientist. It was an amusing process for her family to watch, as she was unable to use a desk. She instead learned to work lying on one side – using an iPad which was held steady by one knee! She has now thankfully improved enough to sometimes use a desk again.
Melinda’s current favorite hobbies are hill-walking and rock climbing, but she loves to try new things (even though she’s often not very good at them). Over the years, the varied activities she has enjoyed have included snorkeling, karate, clog dancing and sailing.
