About Melinda

The transporting experience of fiction is one of my life's greatest pleasures and, for me, writing is the ultimate reading experience. My favorite stories range from accessible literary such as Elizabeth Strout's work to genre spanning such as Ann Patchett's State of Wonder. My current project is an otherworldly Appalachian story with themes similar to Beastly. When I'm not writing, I am mom and part-time oncology nurse.
