Melissa Sarno is a children’s writer based in the lower Hudson Valley where she lives with her husband and two children. Her middle grade novels Just Under the Clouds and A Swirl of Ocean are out now. 

The only thing she loves more than writing books is reading them. She celebrates middle grade and picture books on the B&N Kids Blog and she's the YA and Children's Book Reviews Editor for Cleaver Magazine. She also loves to hike, run, bake cakes, and take photos.
