I'm Melissa Banczak, author of the June Nash Mysteries, and co-author of the Roll-A-Prompt Writing Journal Series with Lisa Mahoney. When I'm not writing, I'm reading. I started this show to rave about new discoveries, chat with indie and small publishing house authors, and occasionally share from my works in progress. This is Books Cubed: Interviews, Raves, & Reads.
