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 studied opera at the Conservatory of Vienna in Austria, graduated from U.N.M. with a degree in history, and went on to Law School. She practiced for three years, and discovered that while she loved the law she hated lawyers so she began writing.
In 1988 she accepted a job on Star Trek: TNG, and began her Hollywood career. Her novels, THE EDGE OF REASON, and THE EDGE OF RUIN are currently available from Tor.

So I saw Hamilton last night. And yes, there is a reason it won every Tony it could possibly win. And yes, I’m so glad I spent the money and bought a ticket.


Because it’s L.A. and just getting anywhere is always a challenge I left the house at four o’clock to drive to the Universal City Metro Station to catch the Red Line to Hollywood and Vine. I bought a tap card, loaded on some credit and head...

“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 Yes, thanks for the link.


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.
