Sarah E Melville
Sarah E. Melville was born in Fresno, California in 1989, and still resides there with her family and her two cats, Baby’s Breath and the Fat One. She’s been an artist for as long as she can remember, and started writing seriously at the age of 13. To date, she has written two novels and is working on a handful (or two) of others, along with a screenplay and a poetry anthology.
Her first book Beautiful Things that Happen to Ugly People is being released in June of 2010. In short, it is a synthesis of art and literature, blurring the lines between poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction, all narrated by her alter ego, a young man named Paulie.
As a person, she is equal parts geek and chic, with a brain for languages and absurd humour. She is a rabid fan of both the Gorillaz and DH Lawrence, and will be an unashamed Anglophile until the day she dies. Her secret weapon is dancing and she does not care what you think about her outfit. She looks good.
She’s been blogging at s-melville.blogspot.com for over a year about art, nadsat, writing, dead languages, the Gorillaz, and all her other strange passions. A small selection of her artwork can be viewed at sarahemelville.daportfolio.com.
All of the artwork and photos that appear with her writing on this site are her own work. Be nice and please don’t steal them!
