About Author/ Artist Melinda Priebe
Melinda Priebe is almost finished with her novel called Will Lexi Remember? This novel is a rewrite of the book called Trapped Inside. Melinda's first novel was doing well and changed lives for the best, but was published without having an editor. Plus Melinda wanted to add some characters that should have been included in the first book. Melinda can only imagine what lives will be changed once Will Lexi Remember? is completed, edited and published. Melinda Priebe is an artist and an author who has overcome the effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury that she sustained in 1995 during a near-fatal car accident. She is a determined individual and a devout Christian. One of Her missions in life is to inspire hope in others who have also experienced tragic events. Her message is, “Never give up on yourself!” One of Melinda's favorite Bible verses is Romans 8:28. She has seen this verse come to pass in her life as well as in the lives of others. As it is written in Romans 8:28, “And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.” Melinda Priebe's loving husband Scott has supported Melinda with her writing, art and with setting up this Weebly account. Melinda store is getting updated soon and will feature a few of painting prints from her website art gallery. Melinda Priebe's gallery shows has her book she wrote and illustrated called Amazing Animal Facts. Unfortunately this children's book is not available at this time, because the publishing company Melinda went through is no longer in business.

Melinda will have the pendants showing on this site soon The pendants will be on scarfs, and necklaces. Individuals can also have an option to buy the pendants without the chains or scarfs.
