Melissa Kent was born in 1985 in North Queensland, Australia.  Throughout her childhood she developed a passion for creative writing and poetry.  This childhood passion and natural talent didn’t go unnoticed as she would often use her creative flair to create remarkable personalised poems as gifts for people, and to enhance her school assessment pieces.

Now a mother of three young children, and Coach for Australian Nutrition Company, ‘Changing Habits’, Melissa has decided to chase her lifelong dream of becoming an author.  Taking inspiration from her three children, Melissa’s work is both imaginative and enticing, and is fun to read for children and adults alike.  


After losing 60kgs and changing her family’s eating habits, Melissa also developed a keen interest in supporting others to play an active role in managing their physical and emotional health and wellbeing, which she often does through her writing.


Melissa is married to her high school sweetheart, Michael, and together with their three children, they live on the idillic Sunshine Coast, in Queensland.  As a family they enjoy kayaking, hiking, sunny days at the beach, and rainy day cubbies.  Melissa’s own personal interest’s include music, drama and creative expression, poetry, cooking, and of course, reading.
