Escapes, retreats, and reminders.
I've become terrible at blogging. I'm sorry, dear readers. Last week on my days off from Dillard's, I escaped to a cabin in Red River, NM. It was the best few days I've had in a very long time. The locals consisted of deer, geese, ducks, and of course, my b...

Crafting, reading and writing = a happy Mel.
(Disclaimer: I do not claim the artwork as my own!) Fun fact: I drew a picture like this without the key for my art class in high school. Came out pretty well, amazingly enough, hand and all! I do miss drawing though. Should bring that back during one of my...

New plan!
(Disclaimer: I do not claim the artwork as my own!) I promised details about the new plan, did I not? I'm here to deliver! I decided to stop writing SACRED SISTERS. No, it is not indefinite. I am stopping because I keep getting ideas for it that would requi...

Introduction

Melanie Rodriguez holds a BA in creative writing from Green Mountain College in Poultney, Vermont. She says she's been compelled to write stories dictated by the voices she's heard inside her head since she was a child, citing the story line of her debut book Child of Blackwen: An Artemis Ravenwing Novel as one of the main reasons she majored in creative writing. It's an epic work of high fantasy narrating the coming-of-age story of a young half-vampire, half-human creature known as a dhampir. A former New Yorker, Rodriguez is an avid reader and sports fan who now lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with her overly excitable shepsky (a shepherd-husky mix), Shadow.
