Melissa Fleischacker
Job description:
I'm a storyteller.

Why did you choose this industry?
Writing is my constant. I’ve always written, and it has always seen me through. Once I figured out it was possible to make a living in the field without needing to be a published author – BOOM – no looking back. I love discovering the story as much as I love the challenge and thrill of telling it.

Last place outside of Ohio you visited:
A better question would be, “When did you last visit Ohio?”, with the answer being in October of 2021, when driving through the state with my husband, our two kids and pack of English pointers en route to my childhood home in Upstate New York. We currently live just outside Fargo, North Dakota (aka the North Pole of the Midwest).
