About

Melissa McCain

For the love of plants...

Melissa McCain is an author, illustrator, and plant lover! 

​She works in Colorado with her husband, Dash the dog, 21 chickens, and a hive of bees. She has written 1 children's book, and 5 prompted journals, as well as, designed a very popular oracle card deck.

​When she is not making art or writing, she is busy tending to her plants and experimenting with propagation.  She drew inspiration for her children's book PLANT FRIENDS from her love of houseplants and nature in general and the desire to share that love with generations to come.

​Melissa enjoys moments of “daily magic”- celebrating time spent in nature hiking with her dog, reading, and trying to keep her chickens from devouring her garden.
