An Insightful Blog from an Experienced Writer, Director, and Producer

Melissa Jo Peltier is one of those people where you may not recognize her name at first, but you've surely seen some of her work. She's the co-author of five best-selling books with the "Dog Whisperer," Cesar Millan. She directed and co-wrote a documentary about child abuse that was narrated by Oprah Winfrey. She was co-executive producer of My Big Fat Greek Wedding. These are just a few of the items on her resume.

Peltier's latest project is a novel called Reality Boulevard, which is grounded in her own experiences in Hollywood as the reality TV industry has taken over a bigger and bigger share of TV programming.

For readers who'd like to know more about Peltier's perspectives on reality TV (hint: she's not a fan), she's created an engaging blog on her website where she shares her reflections on the realities (and unrealities) of reality TV. Peltier does a lot of reading/research, especially about media and kids, and recent blog entries referred to studies done by the Girl Scouts council and other organizations.

For more about her novel, check out the Amazon page for Reality Boulevard, available as an ebook for Kindle.
