A writer who grew up wearing flip-flops...

Hello, all!  Here's my (still) much neglected web site of all things Mel.  Life is still chaotic (with me joining the ranks of motherhood and feverishly working on my dissertation), and I realize I haven't been updating myself here the way I should.  I'll try to do better in 2012.
 
Thanks for visiting!

P.S.  Buy my book!

Yet another round...
Horn tooting alert: I have a poem in the Summer issue of Goblin Fruit (http://www.goblinfruit.net/2012/summer/poems/?poem=hurricaneophelia).  I also managed to miss my big debut in Strange Horizons (I thought my piece was going to be featured on July 18.  Turns out it was published on June 18.)  So now it's archived but you can still find it here: http://www.strangehorizons.com/2012/20120618/frederick-p.shtml.  I should add a trigger warning for this poem, since it deals with rape and its aftermath and has some strong language

Little blog people

Coming soon: content...

Whence my freed Soul to her bright Sphere shall fly,
Through boundless Orbs, eternal Regions spy,
And like the Sun, be All one glorious Eye.
