Welcome to Nights of Passion’s Sunday Blogger Melanie Meadors


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!

  1. Welcome, Melanie. I’m thirlled to have you join our ranks.

    Enjoy your Sundays – I did!

  3. Melanie, do you still have your story of the whale with the hiccups? I’d love to read it!
    BTW, my grandchildren were homeschooled, very successfully. They all turned out to be individual thinkers …
    We have a lot in common, I rescue dying (pronounced dead even) plants, and roses grew along fences wherever I lived. My New Dawn roses bloomed into December.
    Glad to get to know you better! 🙂

      Unfortunately, the whale story did not survive! It was fully illustrated and everything, though–a true masterpiece ;). Roses behaved very strangely last year. Mine bloomed very late. It must have been the weird temps we were having. Thanks for stopping by, ZsuZsa!

  4. Hey sweetie!! Great piece, can’t wait to read your blog column!

      Hi Marian–I’ve enjoyed reading your articles on here so much–hopefully mine will be as interesting!

  6. Wow! I want to be in your head! 🙂

    Looking forward to reading your posts, Mel!

      My head can be a scary place, Katy 😉 Very often there is a little TOO much going on in there! Thanks for stopping by.

    Welcome to the Scribes, Melody. I really enjoyed hearing about your early writing experiences. I am looking forward to reading your blog you on Sundays.

    • Melanie Meadors says:

      Thanks Bonnie! One of my favorite writing/imagining experiences (not when it was happening, of course) was when we were learning about Carthage and I got a little carried away in my notebook…my teacher picked it up and showed the whole class! How embarrassing…

    Welcome to the group, Melanie! I love to hear about new people, and although I have not read anything of yours as of yet, I hope to do so in the future. I, too, love history–especially military history. Although I don’t home school my kids (4), I take them to battlefields all the time. We go to reenactments every year, and my oldest son (16) is joining a local reenactor group. I really love doing the living history thing…so many stories that haven’t been told…

    • Melanie Meadors says:

      Hi Sandy, thanks for commenting! We love going to places like Old Sturbridge Village. My son is interested in joining a fife and drum corp (my husband was a member of the Stowe Minutemen for a while). Fun stuff!
