Hello there!

I'm Mel.

I have been reading and writing since I was six, and I still enjoy words. I love the way they allow us to soar, to dive, to travel through space and timeā€”from anywhere.

Originally from Singapore, I am now based in New Zealand with my family. As a wife and mother I wrote my books "How to love with a healing heart" and "Calm Elegance for the Mama at Home". I dedicate these to my family but also to all women, especially the many mothers who have shared with me their beautiful, sometimes hard, stories of raising their young.

I am also the author of "Write from the Start", a quick dose of inspiration for writers, and "Twenty-six", a collection of vignettes and poems. Click here for more info on my books.

And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
