About Me 

Hi, and welcome to the blog! I'm Melissa Gravitis, a Christian teen writer. I have a passion for fiction writing, reading, sketching, and following dreams. I am a TCK (Third Culture Kid) and I've recently moved back to my passport country of Australia after living in Thailand for 14 years. If you can't find me reading heart-wrenching YA, you can find me writing furiously on my laptop, dancing, or jamming to music!

About Quill Pen Writer

Ever since April 2016, I've been sharing my thoughts on writing, books, and the writing life here on Quill Pen Writer. The name came from a gift bestowed upon me from some lovely friends who believed in my writing dream: a quill pen! I've found the most amazing community of writers and readers here, and I hope you will be a part of that!

  1. I love your hair color, it's so pretty! I'm a Christian, too. Are you homeschooled by any chance?

    1. Aw thanks so much! It's lovely to meet to another Christian blogger. <3 No, I'm not, but I have a few home-schooled friends. I attended an international school in Thailand and am now in an Australian public school. :D Are you home-schooled? :)

  2. It's been nice to have a look around your blog, Melissa! Thanks for leaving your link on mine. :)

    That's amazing you grew up in Thailand! Plus, it's nice to 'meet' fellow Australians too. :) What instruments do you play?

    1. Not a problem; I'm so happy you enjoyed my blog! :D Thank you, it is pretty cool haha. Hello fellow Aussie! Yes, it's very nice to meet another Aussie blogger. :) I used to play trumpet for a few years, but sadly stopped, so now I'm more a music lover and listener than a player. Do you play any instruments?

    2. Oh yes! What kind of music is your preference for listening? My brother used to play trumpet, actually. I play violin and piano.

    3. Awesome! I love violin music, which is probably one of the reasons why I have a character who plays the violin. XD I listen to a mix between pop, movie soundtracks, Christian, clean rap, and instrumental music. :) What about you?

  3. Hey Melissa! It sounds like you've been on quite a few adventures in your life. Thailand must have been such a phenomenal experience. I am not a TCK myself, but my fiance spent part of his childhood growing up in Nigeria so I have a bit of a sense of the world that one enters returning home from his stories.
    Australia is beautiful, I'm from Canada myself but I have some cousins living there and I went to visit them once upon a time. Such a unique and lovely country. You're so lucky!
    It's so nice to meet you! :DD

    1. Hi Emily! (Sorry for the late reply!) I'm so glad you stopped by my blog. XD
      Yes, it definitely was! That's awesome. Tell your fiance hi from a fellow TCK! It has been quite a struggle returning "home" considering I never feel quite settled in either country. :)
      Australia's a gorgeous country! I am very lucky. :D I'd love to see Canada's beauty some day. Thanks so much for dropping by and following Emily! <3
