Features Week June Day 1: Meli

Meli and I recently met on Twitter. Since it’s so important to make friends in the writing community, I’m thankful for the support we share there. If you’ve got an itch for something Halloween-y, her creepy witch poetry is sure to satiate.


How long have you been writing?

I’ve been writing since I was ten.

What inspired you to become a writer?

When I was little girl and when I was reading, I used to pick up book and read them and would think “man, how cool it would be to write something this wonderful and have tons of people enjoy it and be in my own little world with me. I knew from an early age I wanted to be one. So, that’s what inspired me reading did.

Are you published anywhere?

Yes, on Lulu.com

In what genre do you write?

I write horror and it’s all about witches and sometimes friendship too.

What is the most challenging part about being a writer in the genre you’ve chosen?

It can be hard to think of something that scares people sometimes.

What writer(s) do you look up to?

I look up to Lurlene McDaniel and JK Rowling. They’re two of my inspirations.
