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.

  1. I am so very sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers.

    • Thank you, my dear. I truly am doing well. Despite the hard work and emotional roller-coaster, I am so very grateful that I had the opportunity to care for Mom during the last years of her life. It enabled us to clear away any old trash between us and to forge a new and loving relationship that I will forever value. There was a time in my life when I’d have said I would never miss her. Now I miss her daily, and it’s a good thing.

    Dear Melissa: Thanks for sharing this journey with us. I learned a lot from your posts, with, perhaps a few laughs along the way. And thanks too for the wonderful picture of your Mom. What a great legacy she leaves in her daughter.
    Best to you and yours.
