My name is Melvin Neal Edwards. I am a new author/writer of children’s books. I was born on July 31, 1959, in New York City. I am the fifth child out of six. I lived in New York City for most of my life and have relocated to upstate New York since 1987. I am happily married with six children and one grandson. I worked for the New York State Department of Correctional Services for twenty-seven years. All my life I tried to keep out of trouble so I would not end up in jail, but I ended up there anyway. I have since retired, and I’m currently working as a school bus driver. It’s a great job. I love working with children. I am learning how to be a mentor in life and to be a positive role model to the young adults. I always inform the students when I am picking them up for school in the school bus, ladies first. The young female students love this. I also praise the young men for their cooperation. I truly hope you enjoy my books.
