Insights into the Lawyer's Soul
Melanie Bragg is a native Texan, a seasoned attorney, a prolific author, a compelling public speaker, writing coach, mentor, and leader. She is devoted to her craft, writes daily, and finds joy in sharing her experiences with other attorneys, writers, professional groups, youth and anyone else seeking guidance or mentorship. She brings an enthusiastic, motivating and energetic spirit to everything she touches.
At a young age, her father instilled in her the belief that she could achieve anything she set her mind to, while her mother gave her a deep love for books and movies. At age seven, Melanie wrote "The Story of My Life" on her mother's manual typewriter. While it was only half a page, it was a start. Since then, she has never stopped writing.
Melanie is a frequent public speaker on the subjects of motivation and marketing bringing her own personal blend of old-fashioned school teacher, cheerleader, and book evangelist to the party. She loves movies and anything involving a good story.
When she's not writing, Melanie devotes her time to her work as 2018-2019 Chair of the ABA Solo, Small Firm, and General Practice Division. She volunteers whenever possible, and is always on the lookout for positive ways to use her time and energy.
Melanie loves a good story. On Friday afternoons, you can see her at the local theater catching a new movie.
