Melina Macall

Melina Macall's love of reading started when she was very young. Most nights she slept with a book under her pillow. Noddy taught her that everyday life offers adventures all the time. Gerald Durrell introduced her to the amazing world of animals, and a passion to respect and protect them. Having to choose between a science or arts degree was difficult but, with her nose often buried in a book, and her love of playing with words, English won.


Instead of becoming a vet, her careers have spanned theater, radio, writing, education, advocacy, and travel. 


Inspired by her volunteering experiences at Bluemont Sanctuary, Melina is thrilled to share this incredible place in her debut children’s picture book, Bluemont Tails: Roxy the Hanoverian Horse.


Melina lives in Montclair, New Jersey, where her family has raised many Seeing Eye dogs, including Imari (aka Murray) who is now a permanent family member. 

Melina is available for book readings, speaking engagements, commissions, workshops and more. Please get in touch.


I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities. Let's connect.
