My name is Melody, and I love words.
I love writing. In my nonfiction, I cover hobbies and lifestyle, gender equality, food and nutrition, environment and transportation, travel and memoir. In my fiction, I like writing about the moments, large and small, that make people who they are.
I love reading. My favorite genres include literary fiction, international fiction, young adult/new adult, memoir and narrative nonfiction, to name a few. I’m particularly obsessed with books by women, and I will soon launch a challenge to read all titles shortlisted for the Bailey’s Prize.
I love making books. Check out my shop to learn about my customizable miniature book jewelry, Christmas ornaments, and magnets; my handmade guestbooks; one-of-a-kind book prints; and more!
I love bookstores. Once a month, I get particularly geeky about my love for books by moderating the Nonfiction Book Club at One More Page Books & More–drop by sometime!
I am a program manager at the International Reporting Project, an independent journalism nonprofit in DC. I received my bachelor’s in English and linguistics at Georgetown University, and I’m currently pursuing my master’s in writing at the Johns Hopkins University.
