Lucky Penny Publications

Building on A Legacy

Melissa Marsted comes from a long line of entrepreneurs. Her great grandfather was the inventor of the Erector Set, and her grandmother owned a children’s toy store. After losing her house in the 2008 Santa Barbara wildfire, Melissa moved to Park City to start over and focus on building her publishing business.

Lucky Penny Publications, LLC is a full service publishing company that includes ebooks and print-on-demand soft and hardcover books, including children's books, memoirs, and autobiographies.

She started her line of children’s books about our national parks to nurture the creative spirit and love of the outdoors in young people. The first two national park books are in print and and an additional three are in development.

The name Lucky Penny Press comes from the two fully intact piggy banks that were found in Melissa’s oldest son’s room after the fire and the pennies she picks up on her runs. Found pennies are now a sign for her to trust her intuition, live life to its fullest, and follow a path in one's legacy.

Inspiring. Adventurous. Nature-oriented. Educational. Creative. Stories.
