What Speaking My Truth Means To Me – Melissa Kline

Being a part of this project is a dream come true.  I have wanted for so long to be heard, to have a chance to share my story with the world and to be a part of something bigger than myself.  This project has allowed all of those things to happen.  For the first time in my life I have a voice.  I am being seen and heard.  I am being accepted, and so are my sisters.  My two passions unite: Writing and sisterhood.  We are all coming together like pieces to a puzzle to create one big picture.  That picture is raw, real and transformational.  It is a piece of who we truly are, a glimpse of the inside.  You will find our sadness, joy, tears, happiness, struggle, love, creativity and metamorphosis.  You will find real women, real stories and real life.  We are all on our own paths and we are all very different, but we come together as one to help one another.  We are reaching out and giving hope one woman at a time.  I am honored to have a chance to speak my truth and to be one of those women.

Melissa Kline writes in Denver, Colorado where she lives with her husband and two sons.  She is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators and is the leader of a women’s writing group.  Her preferred genre is young adult but she writes short stories and non-fiction as well.  Her calling is to “Reach out to others and give hope through writing.”  When Melissa is not creating novels, you will most likely find her somewhere out in nature.  To contact Melissa, and learn more about her writing group, email her at mdkline@mac.com or read her blog at http://melissakline.blogspot.com
