About the author

Born in historic Morristown, New Jersey, Melissa Desmond has been a passionate animal lover all her life enjoying the companionship of cats, dogs, hermit crabs, birds and fish from a young age. Moving with her family to Sydney, Australia when she became lifelong friends with Joanna Blaylock (nee Yetman), who would later go on to illustrate Tyson's Tail, Melissa's first published book.

While Melissa had experienced pet loss as a child it was the tragic death of her beloved cat Tyson as an adult, and the incredible experiences that followed, that inspired her to write Tyson's Tail. The immense grief that Melissa experienced in the wake of Tyson's death became a catalyst for personal growth and spiritual awakening, leading her to study life, death and the afterlife. Based on a true story, Tyson’s Tail is Melissa's own personal experience of losing her much loved, crazy cat Tyson, who chased one too many possums, and was hit by a car in the fall of 2008.

As a mother of two girls, Arabella and Indiana (aged 8 and 5) a life coach, and an intuitive healer, Melissa wanted to share her magical, spirited story to help heal the hearts of animal lovers of all ages. She hopes her story will uplift, inspire and empower readers facing the very same but seldom spoken pain to embark on their own journey from grief to gratitude, knowing that love, kinship and spirit can never die. 

Now residing in beautiful Tampa, Florida with her family, Melissa enjoys being with her family, writing magical"tails", her beloved pets, spending time in nature, and helping others live their best lives.
