In my late thirties, as a wife, a mother, an administrative manager…
As a woman in emotional flux, I spread my fingers across a keyboard one day to defeat the boredom inside my mind.
I found that truth was actually quite interesting. I found that the imaginary was even more interesting. I found that I could write.
And, Mel Douleur was born.
I write Supernatural romance, a touch of horror, realistic fiction, Erotica (including BDSM), and a lot of Poetry. I have two novels (yet to be published), a short piece of Erotic Horror released in the October 2015 issue of Infernal Ink magazine, and countless poems, including one printed in the October 2015 issue of The Reverie Journal. Most of the others, and a pile of sexy, short stories can be found here.
There is more, still inside, waiting to be typed into existence. Some already started, waiting for me to find the time to dust it off and continue. Some yet to be dreamed about. But I am just finding my path to fulfillment.
I love reading, when I can make the time, and enjoy the brevity of reading blog posts and poetry. The synergy of reading other writers often inspires me, but I do tend to get wrapped up in the writing, stealing time from the reading.
I enjoy participating in writing exercises, workshops, prompts and assignments that assist in developing my craft. I also, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on how you look at it, find peace and excitement in about a thousand other hobbies that often borrow time from writing.
I have no writing goals at the moment. Just to put something up here at least once a week for your enjoyment.
And I really hope you do enjoy.
