As the sun sets…


…and the blue haze comes in…as the smells of dinner cooking waft in from the kitchen along with the sounds of carols courtesy of Pandora…as I hear my husband on the phone with his daughter, my mother with her brother…let me offer wishes for a blessed Christmas to all (or whatever holiday you celebrate, or none at all). May Peace of mind, heart, and soul be yours. Thank you for accompanying me on this wild ride. Thank you for your advice and your compassion. Thank you.

About Melissa Crandall

Longer ago than I care to admit--although I will--I cut my writing teeth on fanzines and media tie-in novels. Since then, I've moved on to narrative nonfiction, speculative fiction, and essays. I write to explore and understand the world around me, the things I see and experience nearby or from a distance. If I shake myself up, cool. If I shake you up, even better. Not gratuitously--what's the point in that?--but to set what I know, or think I know, on end and realize, "Well, doesn't it look different from this side!" My work is neither sexually explicit nor graphically violent. Let's face it - your imaginations will come up with things far worse than anything I could write, no matter how descriptive. Besides, it's just not my thing. I live in Connecticut with my supportive husband Ed, a cat named Ruby who might just think she's a dog, and an epileptic Australian shepherd named Holly who isn't quite certain anymore who she is, except she knows she loves her mommy.
