I’m Melanie Meadors, and it looks like I’m going to be the Sunday blogger here at Nights of Passion. When I heard that NOP needed someone, I was overjoyed. Not only would I be in the company of such a great group of people, but I would be writing for a blog that I have enjoyed reading for a couple years now.
So, who am I, and what will you be seeing from me?
I’m a historical romance writer (who also writes speculative fiction in another personality). I’ve been writing since I can remember, starting with silly things like a whale with the hiccups in the second grade. In high school, my history teacher would catch me daydreaming, but never could punish me for it because my average in the class was an A+. If only he knew the adventures I was having in my mind–crossing the Alps with Hannibal, helping Cicero write one of his speeches, saying goodbye to my true love as he got onto a train to go fight in the Great War. I’ve had several short stories published, and am working toward seeing one of my novels in print. I love to help fellow writers, and was so happy to be elected vice president of my local RWA chapter (CTRWA).
What do I do when I’m not writing? I homeschool my son, which is an adventure all unto itself. I also live in a 100 year old house (full of history, of course) that needs constant attention. I rescue rabbits and guinea pigs, and rose bushes line every path and fence in my yard.
I can’t wait to share my posts with you, and I look forward to reading everyone’s comments!
