Melinda (‘Mel') first came to social media attention via the wonderfully intelligent and witty posts on her stylish blog – ‘HerMelness Speaks…Out.' After the departure of her last child from home, Melinda started a new personal blog, What Mel Did, to reflect her changing reality and a place to 'just write' authentically again. Through her blogging, Melinda was talent spotted and enlisted as a monthly columnist for the UK's largest regional newspaper, The Eastern Daily Press and is also the founder and Editor-in-Chief of the news and editorial website, Post-40 Bloggers, which features and publicises free of charge quality work of talented bloggers and writers aged 40+. To pay the bills, Melinda is a project management professional. Melinda remains a widow, but will marry Denzel Washington after the sudden and unexpected disappearance of any of his wives.
