Melonie McCoy studied TV and Radio Production as a young woman and in later years went on to write about single parenthood. A highlight in her writing career was being mentioned next to Maya Angelou in the book Two Of Us Make a World. Her career went on to include PR, marketing and media management for companies such as CBS Radio and Intracorp Development. But above all, Melonie's role as a mother is dearest to her heart. She writes about attached parenting, LGBTQ families, asthma awareness, and Scotland whenever possible and has recently launched Highland Lass Copywriting. Melonie sees Compassion Prison Project's programs as a beautiful path to healing the inner child in all of us.
