About the Author

Melissa Michaels is NOT a DIY Diva.

But she is the author of the ebook NOT a DIY Diva and the writer and creator of the popular decorating blog The Inspired Room.

She is a wife to Jerry, mom to three very creative children (Kylee, Courtney, and Luke). She also is a writer for DaySpring and (in)courage.me  (a division of Hallmark) and a guest contributor to Williams-Sonoma Designer Marketplace. The Inspired Room blog reaches nearly 300,000 unique readers each month and over 1 million page views. Melissa and The Inspired Room have been featured on HGTV.com, Apartment Therapy, Better Homes & Gardens, Ladies Home Journal, Williams Sonoma Designer Marketplace, Cottages & Bungalows and other publications in print and around the web.

When she isn’t online, she and her family are spending time with a unique church and non-profit organization they created near the shores of Puget Sound. Melissa’s favorite thing to do is shut down her laptop whenever possible to enjoy her real life at home. Preferably with chocolate.
