A few of my favorite things, suggestions about about what to read/see/listen to next.
Melody Wingfield is a writer of bewitching and twisted tales. She writes short and long fiction, flash fiction, poetry, and also composes music. She enjoys writing fairy tales with gruesome endings and twisting stories you think you know into new and fascinating shapes.
Her writing style has been heavily influenced by her literary heroes: Neil Gaiman, Stephen King, N.K. Jemisin, Robert Jordan, and others. Her first short story, The King’s Mask, placed 3rd in the Writer’s Digest Short Story competition (Horror category). She is a current finalist in NYC Midnight’s Short Story Challenge 2019. She is currently finalizing a Greek Mythology rewrite of epic proportions for adults — think Game of Thrones meets Greek Mythology.
In addition to her own creative projects, Melody is deeply invested in helping fellow writers pursue their dreams. With the help of her writer’s group, she co-hosts the bawdy, informational, and inspirational Method and Muse podcast for writers-in-process. She is active in the Twitter #writerscommunity and enjoys facilitating writing workshops and participating in panels at Cons whenever she has the chance.
Her website, www.melodywingfield.com, contains tips and anecdotes for writers and readers, and serves as an open journal of her experiences as she pursues her life-long dream of becoming a best-selling, traditionally published author. Of all her works, she is most proud of her daughter, Brighton, who is studying cinematography and photography at MTSU. She currently lives in the Scenic City of Chattanooga, TN with her dog, Blitz Zen (who she secretly suspects is a cross-dressing cat).
