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

ASIN: B00C3HK3GE, A Gift of Thorns by Melody Hewson-This story is only 5 pages long. However, the author shows great potential. She was transcribed a beautiful and original story. Her style is descriptive and seems to express emotion. By this I mean, she not only does a good job describing the environment, she also digs into the emotions of her characters. https://0000www.smashwords.com/books/view/297776

Good story that kept my interest.Clift hanger, I like to be warned before reading that it is an introduction only. That is why I gave it 4 stars and not 5 stars.

I really enjoyed this short fantasy tale. Although it is just a short introduction to a larger story, it still gives you a good feel for what the writer has planned. The ending left me wanting more so I will definitely be looking out for part 2.

All fans of fantasy fiction should give it a read.
