About Melinda

Hi, I'm Melinda Wright and I'm working on three projects. My children's books are titled, "Little Bit the Pink Crocodile". In my first book Little Bit discovers that God makes us different for a reason. Children find out through Little Bit that they have the answers to life's problems within. And in the book, God comes to Little Bit in a dream and gives her a vision to share with the world. An... More

Hi Melinda it has been quite a while since our last "conversation" I've had a couple of medical annoyances but one kind of expects them by the 79th year so I just try to keep on keeping on. It is very nice hearing from you and I hope things are going well for you.

Hello, Melinda. Thanks for adding me. Happy writing.

Hi Melinda
Thanks for the friend request!
The best to you on your children's books!
Here is an excerpt from Angelicus:

I'm supposed to be editing and revising book 2 but I have been sneaking into book 3. Couple of chapters are in the computer.

Then I had a short story demand attention. If you are interested it's War of the Whirls at
Comment by Christine Kohler on 4/7/2009 at 10:40 PM:
That's a really thoughtful comment about writing humor. I'm going to keep it and meditate on it much.
Yes, I do see funny things in life, things that aren't even there (just in my head.) And I see a lot of dark/black humor in the worst of conditions.
The MG novel I'm working ... more

You are about your Father's business! I love it!
Comment by Dixie Phillips on 3/9/2009 at 7:52 PM:
Hey Melinda,
We are doing well. Are you writing more?
Comment by Carole Mackin on 2/9/2009 at 12:21 PM:
I visited your webpage. I think your game will get the desired results.

Hi there - keep up the good work and have a great Christmas
Comment by Bev Funk on 11/28/2008 at 3:06 PM:
Happy Thanksgiving to you too. My entire "downline" family was here and we had dinner in the middle "back 40" at my only Daughter and her wonderful Husband's home. We both live on the family farm that has been "ours" now into the 3rd generation. My Grandson's who now live out of town plan on comi... more
Comment by Christine Kohler on 11/26/2008 at 11:02 PM:
Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for the well wishes, too.
It's been hectic here. I've been in the process of selling a house and moving to two different other houses in two towns hours apart. Very, very long story. But this move has taken me from March to November. It's finally finalized. Yay... more
Comment by Dixie Phillips on 9/27/2008 at 4:27 PM:
I've added a few more pictures. Hope you get to take the time to look at them.

Hey Melinda,
I was thrilled to hear from you. Life has been crazy in our neck of the woods. My honey had a kidney transplant. Our son gave him a kidney for Father's Day. He is recuperating nicely.
I was wondering the other day about you. How is your writing coming?
Sendi... more

Hi Melinda
It was nice hearing from you. My life has been busy with working on line as I begin to begin to learn how to make $$$ there/here. Everybody in this area of SW Ohio has had major problems with loss of electric for the past 10 days. It seems like we got hit by Ike (the Hurricane fro... more

Glad you found the blog post helpful. Lots more blog posts and articles at www.procrastivity.com and www.newleafsystems.com if you need a little motivation or strategies for using more of your potential.

Hi Melinda: I didn't have horses until about 4 years ago, While I always wanted one (and now I have 3!) I never really thought I would have one. It's a big responsibility, not just because of the feeding/grooming/farriering/vet stuff, but because it takes regular and courageous attention and effo... more

You've brightened my day! Wishing you the best breaking through as an illustrator. You're off to a great start.
Take Care,

Thanks for accepting the invite and all the kind words melinda, yes, we were blessed with Niall, he's a little gem.
Take care, All the best, Aaron.
Comment by Moshe Marks on 4/28/2008 at 10:27 PM:
Thanks very much and I certainly mean it. It is rough and I have hit many walls but I keep saying to myself, "how many other people have been assaulted by these guys/" and that gets me right back on the horse. Doing the book was one thing, dealing with the feelings and shame as a result is another, ... more
Comment by Moshe Marks on 3/29/2008 at 11:15 PM:
I hope this note finds you well and happy. I've been very busy and preoccupied with many issues that are on the front burner currently.
I actually have tried three times to get a note off to you but the internet doesn't always work late in the evening here in the City. At least o... more
Comment by Tamra Wight on 3/28/2008 at 10:36 AM:
All is well here Melinda. My son and I were sick for about a week, but we're pretty much back on track now.

Thanks for asking!

And you?
Comment by Dixie Phillips on 3/13/2008 at 11:10 PM:
Hi, Melinda,
You can go to www.guardianangelpublishing.com and see if they are taking submissions right now. It's worth a try.

Comment by Sarah Wilson on 3/13/2008 at 10:18 PM:
I hate that Melinda. It has been several years since I contracted with CSS and at that time the man that signed me was Pete Diller. He may not be with them any longer, but at that time they did have a need for Christian children's poetry. I will keep my eyes open and try to think of someone else ... more
Comment by Sarah Wilson on 3/13/2008 at 6:16 PM:
Have you tried CSS Publishing in Lima, Ohio, for a possible publisher? They handle Christian books and I highly recommend. sarah
Comment by Moshe Marks on 3/12/2008 at 2:45 PM:
I did visit your site and will re-visit it soon. It looks like a fun place and is certainly intriguing.

I'll tell you more upon my next visit.

Best of luck to you.

Comment by Moshe Marks on 3/11/2008 at 3:20 PM:
I'm new here but I am excited to see brave people like yourself giving children hope and direction. Keep it up and the story sounds "great."

Comment by Dixie Phillips on 3/7/2008 at 9:45 PM:
I think that's why I loved it so much.... It was so transparent and childlike....... I love children, too, and enjoy seeing the world through their eyes. You and I think alike. :-)
Comment by Dixie Phillips on 3/7/2008 at 9:33 PM:
Thanks for stopping by. I just love Kim's work, too. She seems to capture the storyline beautifully.

Your little pink alligator makes me smile. What a unique and cute idea.

Bless you,

Comment by Marilyn Scott-Waters on 3/1/2008 at 1:23 PM:
Melinda! Hello!

Fun drawing! The first thing I ever tried to draw was a pale pink dragon in preschool, so I've been fond of pink reptiles ever since.

Sending good thoughts your way,

Comment by Bev Funk on 2/26/2008 at 3:31 PM:
Hi Melinda and thank you for your nice comment about our site and Wool E. Soon I will have my other site up and a blog for non-published and self published to help each other. Though there isn't much on it yet, you can open it at www.baashisboutique.com/spc I'd appreciate your opinion on that too.... more

Hi Pinky-
Thank you so much for your kind comment! I just posted the new art as I am trying to update my portfolio and now will concentrate, once again, on editing some pb mn. What are you working on?

Hope you had a nice Valentine Day too. I spent several hours with my daughter and enjoyed our time together.
Be safe

Happy Valentines Day
Comment by Melinda Wentzel on 2/11/2008 at 9:54 AM:
Thanks again for the invitation! As for telling you more about Planet Mom...I author a weekly humor column in a local newspaper and mostly write about how insane it is to be a parent (I have a 19-yr-old daughter, a set of 6-yr-old twins, two cats, a dog and a quirky husband--need I say more?) Anyway... more

HI, Melinda:
Well, it's nice to be blessed, thank you. Right now we're blessed with a day of snow here in Vermont - but slightly clearer weather coming up tomorrow. So what are you working on right now? Something fulfilling and fun, I hope.
Cheers, Nancy

Thank you. I was definitely Moved to have a separate blog about spiritual things.
Comment by Ruth deJauregui on 1/13/2008 at 12:54 PM:
Good morning. Thank you for inviting me to be your friend. I just found this space on Google, when I googled my own name. (I do that now and then to see if there's anything new.) Blessings to you today and every day! Ruth

Hi Pinky, sorry for the confusion, yes, I meant to leave that link based on your bio/intro about "accepting people's differences!"
Shaping Youth is about media and marketing's impact on kids...which is an entirely different matter...and spans the course of positive picks AND damaging dre... more
