Hey, it's me, Melinda!

I am just your average neuroscientist. I have a Ph.D. but trust me, I'm not a total nerd. OK, that's a lie. Moving on.

I believe science fiction is the future and it is up to us to write it. Authors like Kurt Vonnegut, Ray Bradbury, Isaac Asimov, and Orson Scott Card inspire me and show me that words have the power to transcend space and time. After all, if we can pick up a novel written decades ago, or even hundreds of years ago, and still be mesmerized,

that is really something.


I began developing my current science fiction novel while studying neuroscience in graduate school. The idea of brain tech and how it affects the human condition is the stuff of my dreams. Read more about my fiction by visiting My Book or Short Fiction pages.

As for me personally, I live in sunny California with my husband and 2 little girls.
