Melissa Wiley, Former Lead Editor

I’m a novelist by day and Lead Editor here at Damn Interesting by night. As an editor, I’ve worked for The Greensboro Review, Random House, HarperCollins, and’s GeekMom, among other outlets. When I’m not wielding the red pencil, I work on the other side of the desk, writing books for children and teens. I’m into butterfly gardening, geocaching, and indie letterpresses. I live in San Diego with my writer husband (I edit him, too) and a small army of book junkies. I’ve been blogging about my family’s reading life since 2005 at I am @melissawiley on Twitter.
