Melissa Sutton lives in Wyoming, with her husband, Wade, their three children, Haley, Isaac, and Laramie, and numerous pets. Sutton’s love for children brought her to a position in teaching preschool, before deciding to more actively pursue a degree in elementary education. She was inspired to write Little Timmy Learns a Lesson - Making Choices through conversations with her own children about making good choices and how they can be influenced by the people they hang out with, good or bad. She wanted her children to know that they can get into trouble by just spending time with people who are making poor choices, even if they are not the ones acting on it.
