Melody is a freelance writer because she believes that work and fun should not be mutually exclusive. She is a writer, editor and clumsy adventuress, a gypsy at heart, at her happiest when she's living out of a suitcase and uncertain where she'll end up next. When not writing she’s either on the road, in the air, or savoring something tasty. Most of her travels feature outdoor adventures of some sort, although she typically avoids sleeping on the ground. Melody loves staying in a place long enough to get acquainted. Local customs, markets and traditional cultures are magnets for this writer.
She is an ordinary person that enjoys challenging and pushing herself, facing fears with an eye on experiential travel. She needs to do it, feel it and see it so she can write about it. Her hope is that her stories encourage readers to get out there and do the same.
Melody has written about travel for newspapers, magazines and websites, including Caribbean Beat Magazine, Canadian Yachting Magazine, Canadian Jewish News, The Kitchener-Waterloo Record, Active Over 50, Travel and Escape, to name a few. She also writes about outdoor adventure, history, culture and finding the best local food on her blog.
