About Melanie Taryn

Melanie Taryn Lieberman lives in Brooklyn, NY and currently works in the editorial department at Travel + Leisure magazine. After receiving a BFA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing, and a Journalism Minor from Emerson College, she packed up her Boston apartment – which was primarily food magazines, a Keurig, and a yoga mat – and took to the Big Apple to pursue her career as a magazine writer and food blogger.

Melanie’s work has appeared in Boston Common magazine, The Emerson Review, The Connecticut Review, Lifestyle Mirror, Lydia Magazine, TravelandLeisure.com and Travel + Leisure Magazine, and she has received international recognition for her prose, poetry, and playwriting.

Because her greatest passions are writing, food, and wellness, she is happiest when all three happen simultaneously. She can often be found standing at the kitchen counter writing her vegetarian food blog, Little Word Bites, while watching the Food Network and roasting spaghetti squash.
