Mel LeBrun

Biography

I started writing in my early teens, mainly for my own entertainment. After getting laid off from work some years back, I found myself with lots of time on my hands and decided to bring to paper a story and characters that have lived in my imagination for many years.

I chose to self publish for a few reasons. For one, I want to focus on writing. I'm not out to make a name for myself or get mega rich. If I make enough to get by then I'm content. More would be nice but it's not my main ambition. By self publishing online I can get my work out and then get on with the next piece, which makes me happy.
