Melissa Cruz

Melissa is a freelance journalist, fiction writer, feminist killjoy, and all-around nerd from Atlanta, Georgia, with work featured in USA Today and the Human Rights Campaign's Equality Magazine. Her favorite beats to cover are race, education, and gender. When she isn't writing, she enjoys downloading podcasts she'll never find the time to listen to, being a cat lady, seeping into the folds of her couch while watching mindless reality television, and dressing up as people who don't exist.
