Melanie Denise Pering Poems



Hi! I'm Melanie and I live in Texas. I was born in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia to American parents. My father was a Petroleum Engineer for Aramco Oil Company. We lived in an American compound in Abqaiq and were evacuated in 1967 due to the Six Day War. My family traveled around the world before settling home in the United States. I love being a part of the VoicesNet family! So much talent on this web site.
