Of Lite and Darke
About the Author
Melisa Ruscsak
Born In 1982, a native to Lorain Ohio, Melisa grew up living with her grandparents Frances and James Lasure. She attended Clearview High School as well as Lorain County J.V.S. While in J.V.S she attended the Culinary Arts program graduating in 2001.


Two years later in the fall of 2013 after a divorce, she would meet the man who would push her not only to fight to regain her physical strength  but to put her creative mind to work. No longer allowing her to dwell on what she could no longer do but what she could.
 
In December of 2014 they would marry. With determination Melisa would walk down the aisle without the need of a cane.
 
A year later she would begin to write "Of Lite and Darke" Dreaming to see this work through to publishing, even if she would need to publish it herself.

In 2003 she welcomed the addition of her daughter Chyenne. Who inspired her to start to put her dreams to paper. A story she wrote after her daughter's birth, although not published, became the stepping stone to everything else she would eventually write.
In 2011 near tragedy struck as Melisa's health began to decline. By summer of 2011 she would need to use a cane to get around. Suffering a stroke she required a craniotomy where she suffered her second stroke. Leaving her with a partial impairment of her speech, and weakness on her right side.  After surgery she would need to learn not only to walk again, but speak as well as recognize the alphabet. 
 


In 2016 she would see her dream come true. With her daughter as her editor "Of Lite and Darke" was born.
