The Yellow Marker People
Melissa Hosack:

Melissa is an editor as well as an author herself. She has been working as an editor with Whimsical Publications since 2010,
and enjoys working closely with her authors to make their stories as best as they can possibly be. In 2012, she received her

understands an author's attachment and love for their creation, and she believes strongly in allowing all authors to retain their

potential.

Prefers: fiction, and non-fiction if it's like a memoir or biography.

assisted several author friends with their manuscripts and looks forward to this new direction in her life. She enjoys
helping the author maintain their 'voice' while perfecting their story.
