My name is Melanie Richards and I live in Arizona with my husband, Bob. I was born and raised in a military home and my husband is retired military, so I don't claim a place to call my "hometown". I have lived in various places around the globe. I was born in Auburn, NY, south of Lake Ontario in what is known as the Finger Lakes region, which is a far distance from New York City. We are now retired.
I graduated from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida with a B.S. in Economics and Finance and received my MBA in Legal Administration a decade later.
I have two terrific stepchildren, Ross and Pamela, both grown, and the best granddaughter ever, Brooke, age 13.
I love animals. In my youth, I earned my pilot's license and spent much of my time flying. My hobbies include traveling, sewing, quilting, reading historical fiction and mysteries and now paper-crafting. I took up paper-crafting about three years ago and am loving everything about it. It is so difficult to control the ever-growing inventory of products.
