DANDELION MOMS is based in Irvine, California and was created by award winning children’s author, Melissa Northway. Melissa wanted to create a website that embraced all women to show that they all women are beautiful, strong and resilient. Melissa’s journey started six years ago after the birth of her daughter. It was then that Melissa was inspired to write children’s picture books.  Melissa joined the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) to find out how to make her dream of publishing a book come true. The journey was long and tons of work, but in January 2011, her first storybook app, “Penelope the Purple Pirate”, was released through her company Polka Dots Publishing (yes, Melissa started a publishing company to make it happen) and PicPocket Books. Melissa shares her story as often as she can because she didn’t listen to the naysayers who said the way she was going about getting her story published wasn’t the way it was done.  Melissa is a big proponent of carving your own path and going after your dreams. Melissa’s biggest hope is that you are inspired by the women who write about their journey on dandelion moms and she encourages all to share theirs as well!

  7. Amy T says

    I live in the US and my New Year’s Resolution will be to stay more organized with my tasks, appointments etc. And light of the tragedy that just happened yesterday, making sure I hug my kindergartner and 3rd grader more, and set aside those tasks more, to spend more time with them. So basically I’ve broken it already as those contradict each other don’t they 😉 Will try to devote more time to both my kiddos, and the mountain of things to do, how is that 😉

    I live in the US and one of my New Year’s resolutions is to work as many hours as my new job will let me (on call substitute) so we aren’t living paycheck to paycheck and borrowing…. and put aside each month to take our daughter to Disneyland at the end of the year – our first trip and she’s 11 years old, but she is so ready!

  19. Carrie M says

    I live in the USA. My resolution is to continue to research every available moment to find a way to get my 3 year old son out of this Autism cloud he is in. In the pass year he has came a long way. He now makes eye contact but is still non-verbal. So many programs out there but not all are about the child but more about the thousands of dollars they charge without true results. So my resolution is to be smarter at what I try and continue to fight for my little sweet beautiful boy! :)
