Melody especially loves the article format because in conveying the information with or without the slant of a position, it opens a dialogue to a broad audience. She enjoys the ever-changing variety of topics usually on offer in this type of writing and has mainly written articles which were not part of her jobs in the science field.

Book

0 Projects Completed

Melody has completed but not yet published a fiction novel in the women’s literature genre. One of her favorite features of this mode of writing is the ability to take the reader on a longer journey, with time enough to become invested in the elements of a story or viewpoint before rounding the curves ahead. She also enjoys that the research usually required for a lengthy project teaches the writer a lot as well.
