Doctors told Melissa Harris she may never have another child. After nine surgeries, years of fertility treatments and a heartbreaking miscarriage of twins, she brought micro-preemie Sam into the world. His fight for survival, alongside his persevering mother's, is the subject of inspiration in Melissa's new memoir ONE POUND, TWELVE OUNCES (Nov. 2, 2021, She Writes Press), a non-medical, non-religious look at premature birth and miscarriage.

Melissa is now a work-from-home account manager for two virtual creative agencies in the Bay Area. In her free time, she drives kids from activities to appointments to playdates, volunteers at the neonatal intensive care unit at Alta Bates Hospital where Sam was born, and helps her congresswoman fight for better health care for all Americans.
