Hi all, welcome to my blog! I’ll be posting about everything and nothing in my extraordinarily ordinary life.  You may commiserate, or laugh, or be inspired to follow your own dreams as I achieve/fail and generally make fun of myself. I’m a  writer, mainly of young adult speculative fiction and also writing for TV, but I have a fair crack at other genres too.  My main aim as a writer is to take my readers to another world, as that is what I have always enjoyed about reading. I have a part time job, an extremely energetic and independent two year old son, and a very unhealthy and addictive relationship with my stored body fat. Come along with me in 2013 as I reflect upon myself, and make the choice to take charge and run my own life instead of sitting back and waiting for good things to happen.  Love, Melissa  xo photo
