My novella being released this spring is titled, “The Misadventures of Melody T.”! I’m so excited to share the prequel to my novel “Drama University” (being released this Summer).
In “The Misadventures of Melody T.” we meet Melody Ann Thomas as she’s entering 10th grade after a rocky start to her first year of high school. Although she’s not a total nerd, she’s not with the popular kids either. Being in between sucks for her. She’s trying to figure out her place.She doesn’t get along with most girls at her school because they’ve become very cliquish and disapprove of people she hangs out with.
She loves old school music, hip hop but is also a big fan of classical and cuts out from hip hop magazines to create collages on her wall. She also tends to shut people out when she becomes stressed, which scares her.
She has her BFF Shannon to get her through things and her other friend Mecca. Being a quiet person has it’s benefits and negatives. She’s has always excelled academically as well. I don’t want to give away her entire being though. She has some different and tough obstacles to overcome.
The creation of the character Melody is a typical teenage girl in many ways I think she will be relatable. Many of her characteristics are inspired by a couple of different people I have met throughout my life. She quirky, she’s fun yet she’s apprehensive, she’s striving to figure out her place in the world at 16 years old which is a tricky thing to try and accomplish.
What do you think about Melody’s character so far from this description? Does she sound like someone you’d be curious to know? Does she remind you of anyone particular? Comment!!!
