About the Author
Author and illustrator, Melissa Rollo, is a diverse fine artist, working in a variety of traditional mediums. Since elementary school, she spent much of her free time drawing, painting, and making her own little books and newspapers. She has been accepting art commissions since high school when she started taking art seriously, working in various mediums. Rollo studied fine art and illustration at the Maryland Institute College of Art, where she earned her degree to pursue art for a living. She has earned and won various awards and contests for her colored pencil artwork and paintings.

Her idea for The Day the Sun Slept In came about when watching a sunset, observing the sun disappearing below the horizon line. Although she has enjoyed creative writing since grade school, this is her debut.
