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

A brief but chilling glance into the world of the Wolfcaller Chronicles. Follow human ambassador Ethan Dunn into the realm of the sakti, an inscrutable feline people who are not quite as they seem. Ethan is here on a diplomatic mission, but, knowing little to nothing about the sakti aside from what legend and rumor have supplied him with, he finds himself a little in over his head when he finally comes face to face with them.

Or is he? Surely these graceful, polite people are perfectly civil? So why can't he shake this strange feeling that there is an undercurrent to every word his guide, the mysterious Mirris, speaks? Why is every moment within their walls more unnerving than the last? And what is it they are keeping out in the courtyard?

This suspenseful, unsettling tale provides a fascinating introduction to the culture of the sakti from Hewson's Wolfcaller Chronicles.
