Maleeh began writing at the age of eight years old. It was also at that age, she won her first place award for a short story titled, Me and My Shadow.
Her passion for books began as a child when her grandmother, Virginia introduced her to a series of Dr. Seuss’ books.
It was in those moments that she realized her love of words that rhyme.
One of her favorite books, Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, made a lasting impression which helped shape her style of writing into what it is today.
