Melanie Sherman lives in Southwest Washington and has been writing for years against her better judgment. By day she poses as a numbers cruncher in a small manufacturing firm. By night she chases these two cats off her laptop who really can’t write well at all.
Melanie is in love with the sea and writes beautifully about it on her blog, Meanderings of Melanie, that is when she is not crafting humorous posts about everyday life that will flip you out of your chair.
Two words of advice: buckle up.
In 2009 Melanie competed in an international writing contest and won second place in the mainstream category for her manuscript, "Pirates Reckoning." Her critique group claims full responsibility. The members are often heard saying, "We can criticize anyone to success."
