MELINDA M. SNODGRASS

Melinda Snodgrass was born in Los Angeles, but her family moved to New Mexico when she was five months old making her almost a native.

She and Ian Tregillis have delivered a screenplay to their manager, and she has delivered the first novel in a new Urban Fantasy series featuring blood sucking lawyers, THIS CASE I

I get up in the morning, re-read the work from the previous day and polish it. Then I look at my outline and see the next scenes I have to write and I start writing.(less)
Melinda M. Snodgrass I get to day dream and make up stories and share those stories with my readers and viewers. I also just love to write.

In the past few weeks I have seen three movies. Fortunately I ended the streak with a lovely film. Last night I went off to see GREEN BOOK with friends, and despite the length — two hours and ten minutes — this movie never felt long or slow. There were no glitzy action sequences, no CGI wizardry just two men finding understanding and eventually respect and friendship in a difficult and turbulen...

“Sou totalmente a favor do consolo. Se eles simplesmente parassem nisso, mas nunca param. As pessoas sempre decidem ue todos os outros também precisam de consolo e é melhor que seja sua versão do consolo. E, caso não seja, geralmente provam sua tese com a ponta de uma espada ou o cano de uma arma".”
Melinda M. Snodgrass, Down These Strange Streets

“And I realized that maybe none of us ever gets to choose our lives. Our only choice is to live the life that comes to us, or go down into darkness.”

Melinda Snodgrass I realize that Goodreads always gets the short end of the stick. Between blog, Facebook, Twitter and Google + I just don't think to come over here, and say anything. I also keep forgetting to update my books read. I'm reading, I'm just not posting.

I also tend to read books for my critgroup, and so I don't have a lot of time for pleasure reading. Between my own writing, and riding I run out of hours in the day. Right now my relaxation time is spent playing video games which is probably a terrible confession for a writer.


Melinda Snodgrass Yes, thanks for the link.
