About Mel Douleur

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.

Please, always feel free to comment.

  1. You “About” is wonderfully written. I have a question on 2 of your posts……….how can you express feelings of ladies who are gender dysphoric so well? I have kept my feelings inside for 50 years even though each day it gets harder. It seems as though it should be easy to express my heart but i just can’t. You express them in a way that i only can begin to express. i am in awe!

    1. I was actually trying to think of how to respond to your first comment. Well… I suppose because, for the better part of my life, even though I was born female, I repressed my femininity like I was hiding a secret. I showed itself in horrible skewed ways, and I’ve just recently realized just how ridiculously far I had taken the desire for independence, power and achievement. I took on the masculine role in so many parts of my life. It does not compare even in the slightest to what have gone through. But it makes us sisters. I understand the need and the dysphoria that comes from suppressing it. I hope you will put on that dress and be free.

      2. Please write more. I know this for certain, that God has ladies like you on earth because in a cold dark world their needs to be warmth and light. You are among the very few spots of warmth and light.

      3. Oh, bless you. I don’t write here often because I only get about an hour to myself a day, so I use that to work on my book(s). But you have definitely inspired me! Thank you so much for reading.
