Mel Menzies, Author & Keynote Speaker: A Short Biography

BOOKS

Mel Menzies (pronounced Ming-iss) is the author of a number of books (one a Sunday Times No. 4 Best Seller), plus numerous articles. Her latest novel, Time to Shine is due for publication in June 2015.  The first of a series, it is a mystery solved, not by police procedures, but by a counsellor, quirky  Evie Adams. as she seeks to bring her client to a point of assertiveness and fulfilment.

A Painful Post Mortem, meanwhile, is available as an ebook from Amazon.  A novel, it is based on Mel's personal knowledge and understanding of what it is like to lose a child: first to drugs; and, ultimately - after the joy of seeing the habit overcome - to death in suspicious circumstances. Proceeds from all sales are to support charity: two organisations benefiting children. 

PUBLIC SPEAKING

An inspirational keynote speaker, Mel’s background includes live events of up to 700+, plus radio and TV appearances. She likes nothing better than interacting with an audience, or running workshops, and has a passion to help others achieve their potential. Take a look at her speaking experience and book her for your event.

BLOG

Mel blogs regularly on, among other things, Creative Writing, Writing and Publishing, Personality Profiling, personal growth and self-help, relationships, stepfamilies, bereavement and debt. She loves to hear from visitors and always responds to genuine comments and e-mails.

FAMILY, FAITH, BOOK CLUB & CREATIVE WRITING COURSES

Family life is a priority and she and her husband care for two of their grandchildren twice a week - twins aged five, a boy and a girl. She is an active member of a large and lively Baptist Church, where she runs a Book Club. In the past, she and her husband have led Family Forums, Marriage Enrichment Courses and residential Creative Writing Courses.
