About Me

Thanks for visiting. My name is Melissa Fenton and I am wife to the amazing Rick and mother to four sons.  I am an adjunct faculty college librarian, a bibliophile, mother runner, knitter, and donut addict.  I write humorous and sometimes heartfelt essays about parenting (including my life mothering all boys) running, parenting teens, book reviews, modern motherhood, nostalgia, etc. I create a variety of parenting content, with my specific demographic geared towards teen parenting and college aged children.  As a librarian, I also write book reviews, and periodically write about information science and technology use in the classroom. I also write for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as an Awareness Ambassador, and I'm a staff writer for Scary Mommy and Club Mid.
