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!"

Review by: Jonathan Antony Strickland on June 26, 2013 :
This tale was very enjoyable and an excellent introduction for anybody who is new to this writer. As Melody tells us, this is yet another short to the Wolfcaller Chronicles.

The story itself is of two young druids who find themselves trapped as a horde of zombies advance to feast on their flesh. So, I know what your thinking. Will they be ripped limb from limb or could they find a way out? I could tell you, but where's the fun in that! If you really wanna know then I suggest you give it a read.

Review by: Dylan Robinson on June 21, 2013 :
A teasing little short story, which seems to be Ms. Hewson's specialty. It shall be interesting to see how all of these individual story lines meet up, but I trust when the Chronicles are released they will be fantastic works. My only note of critique would be the sense of foreboding or dread is not as tangible as it should be in a story of this nature.
