Mel C. Thompson is a writer of social commentary often centering on the oppressive roles of greed, religion and sexual taboos. He is also a very philosophical and somewhat religiously liberal person who often couches his fiction in what might loosely be called "theological comedy." He was also a publisher and published other authors and himself under his Mel C. Thompson Publishing Company label, along with other labels like Cyborg Productions, Blue Beetle Press and Citi-Voice Magazine. As an amateur musician and part-time radio personality, he appeared on KMEL as a nerd rapper and geek-philosopher. He earlier wrote Buddhist hymns and ordinary pop songs and posted many of them on YouTube. He survived as a security guard and temporary office worker for decades before going out on disability due to a host of physical and mental health problems. Before then he wrote and published thousands of pages of poetry.
