Her love of all things 19th century (except for the pesky parts like cholera, child labor, slavery and no rights for women) consumed her since childhood, when she fell in a stack of Louisa May Alcott books and never got up.

MeiLin wrote nonfiction for thirty years, in radio, television, print, and the web. She always wanted to write fiction, but figured she had time. She discovered she didn't when a series of unfortunate events resulted in a cardiac arrest complete with a near-death experience.

A Good Yule to You!

On this Yule, 2017, I think of the many blessings that have been rained down upon my family and me in the last year, not least being the now-excellent health of my husband. You may recall that he had a triple bypass December 23, 2016; he was only 45. His heart was in terrific shape, but the blood vessels leading to it were 85%, 90% and 95% blocked--only 30% of his blood went through his heart.

MeiLin Miranda G.Y., you've literally got nothing to lose. :) Good luck to you!


message 1: by Geoff

Geoff Thanks so much for accepting my friend request. Love what you're doing with Kickstarter. I was contemplating doing something similar when I release my book later this year, but I hadn't seen any author try it until you! Thanks for diving in and showing the rest of us the possibilities. Cheers!
