mel_mrstaypuftMelanie Fletcher is an expatriate Chicagoan who currently lives in North Dallas with her husband the Bodacious Brit™ and their five fabulous furbags JJ, Jessica, Jeremy, Jemma, and Jasmine (yes, they were following a theme, moving along now).

When not herding cats, she turns into SF Writer Girl, and has the SFWA membership card to prove it. Her fiction can be found in a variety of anthologies and online zines — if you’re interested, her complete bibliography is over here.

But wait — she doesn’t just write specfic. She also works as a designer and graphic artist, and produces the comedy podcast Don’t Quit Your Day Job: The Podcast with Jerry J. Davis, Patrick Gaik and Stacy the News Girl. In fact, if you want to tally up all the things Melanie can do, she can:

  • write
  • edit
  • paint
  • sing
  • dance
  • act
  • fence
  • play a number of instruments
  • build dollhouses
  • knit and crochet
  • quilt
  • do needlepoint, cross stitch and crewelwork
  • moderate panels
  • edit podcasts and videocasts
  • fix cars
  • perform simple plumbing and electrical work
  • perform somewhat more complex carpentry
  • make a damn good deep dish pizza from scratch
  • marry people.

When she refers to herself as a Renaissance Broad, she’s not kidding.
