Melinda Bardon


Melinda Bardon drinks coffee by the pint and writes piles of science fiction and fantasy in a garden house filled with too many doors (and one that she's saving to open for just the right time).

She is currently embarking on a year-long journey called Tale-a-Week, where she publishes one short story every Sunday no matter what. She is also working on her first full-length fantasy novel about a realm that finds itself abruptly without magic.
