Melynda Daugherty


I am the mother of four and a college graduate. I hold a Bachelor's of Science in Accounting and am a member of the Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society. I work for a local transportation company with awesome people. I enjoy volunteering with the Carey Community Soccer Club as a coach. I also enjoy reading, writing poetry and stories, and enjoying nature in all its aspects.

I have had three poems published through World Poetry Movement in 2012. These are "My Daughter" in Stars in Our Hearts: Tokens, "Show the Feeling" in International Who's Who in Poetry, and "What Do You See?" in World Poetry Movement Best Poets and Poems of 2012. I am also due to have a poem published by Eber & Wein.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy I get from writing is the opportunity to live in a world that I create with people that I would like socializing with. In other words, I get to live in my daydreams and nightmares while sharing them with others. When I write it allows me to deal with real life things in a manner that others can relate to. My poetry is a means of expressing my feelings without saying them out loud and it allows me to vent the feelings that I don't like telling others about.
Describe your desk
My desk is not a desk at all. It is many places. In short, it is anywhere that I can set up my laptop or use my trusty pen and paper. For example, I would prefer to be sitting outside right now; however, the weather is a bit cold for that. Right now, my laptop is sitting on an old school desk beside my bed. Later it will likely be on the coffee table while I enjoy a movie. Anywhere and everywhere meaning that I don't really have a specific desk set up.
