Beverly Melasi-Haag lives in Miami, and truly believes that, “Reading is Magic!” She has been a published children’s book author, creative writing instructor, and reading and writing advocate for over 25 years. Her renowned writing career began with writing feature articles for her local newspaper, and later becoming the managing editor of five community newspapers. After, she wrote an educational program called, Writing for Publication, and created a workbook of the same name. Then she went out into the community and taught Creative Writing classes and seminars to adults at colleges, universities, libraries, and in leisure-time classes.
Beverly discovered yet another writing passion, children’s mystery books. She had been writing books for her children for years, because she believes that kids use the stories they read as models for their writing.
Beverly’s writing accomplishments include 7 children’s mystery books published by Gallopade International, and another 5 under her own label. She also develops educational programs for seniors, facilitates workshops, and seminars, and is a certified reading tutor with the Miami-Dade County L.E.A.D.S. Program. She has taught Creative Writing and Intro to Journalism classes in Miami-Dade Community College’s Kids and Teen College Program.
