About Melody Hewson

I am an author, a teller of stories both long and short, real & imagined. So for the sake of my own amusement, here’s a bit of information about me, written in the form of a short story. Whatever information you can gleam from these words is what you are worthy of knowing about it's creator.

Hazel eyes stared up at a cloudless sky before falling to take in the house below it. To some, it would be judged by its flaws ; it's fading paint and scuffed floors. But to her it was perfect. It was hers. And it was home. To one side, a wild forest whispered sweet nothings in the breeze, which was answered by some distant bird's call. "Life is good." She said softly to no one. "And today is a good day."
The sudden squawking of wild fowl pulled her attention to the shaggy black and white dog that rarely strayed far from her side.
"God damn it, Jackalope! Quit chasing those turkeys!"

"I looked heavenward for angels, while beautiful demons showed me the way." - Shannon Nacyl

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on May 12, 2013 :
Very original and fun tale. I did think at the beginning it was going to be a fairly ordinary fantasy tale but the suprise twist and that "Ah Ha" moment that you get as you realise what's actually going on was totally unique.

I also liked the fact that the twist did not come right towards the end and instead you leave the reader with a proper explanation and the beginning of a new story and how our central character (I can't say too much or I'll give it away) ties in her faithful companion.

Very good and a nice short pleasant read.

Well written and easy to read. It could have been darker, or full of pathos, or twee, or cliche...but it wasn't. It avoids all those by being a story that is honest and open to interpretation. well done.

A lovely idea for a story, at the start you think "Hmmm, where's this heading?" but it all soon makes sense and has a nice 'feel-good' quality to it.
