Ever wonder what makes the world work? Ever look up at the night sky and wish you had a better understanding of what’s up there? How do people fit into the big picture that is the universe? Is our world destined to become inhabitable? Is there anything to do about global climate change? What happened to the dinosaurs?

I’m here to help answer your questions about these topics and more.

My name’s Melanie, and I’m a wearer of many hats. Some of you may know me as a science fiction and fantasy author, as well as a role playing game writer. I sew vintage style clothing and love wearing vintage styles. But most of all, I love science, learning, and helping others to learn and understand it as well. I went to school at the College of the Holy Cross and Northern Arizona University and studied under some really awesome people involved in physics, astronomy, chemistry, geology, and more. I get excited about science—sometimes, TOO excited—and I really want to share that passion with others.

So why Patreon? Why not just share this passion on social media or a plain blog? Well, this is where you come in. Things change all the time—new information comes to light, as the Dude says, and in order for me to tell you about these changes, I need to be literate in them to begin with. I’m hoping to further my education in these things, which doesn’t come cheap! So while most of my articles will be free to the public, I’m asking that those who CAN to maybe throw me a couple bucks a month to help keep things going.

On this Patreon page, I’ll be sharing science articles that I’ve written, articles on how to improve your writing for authors, fun things I experience in my journey for knowledge, and more. Other writers will find it helpful as a resource for their science fiction, and regular people will find it to be a place where they can learn about scientific happenings in layman’s terms. Above all, I hope it will be fun!

Welcome aboard!
