Melony Teague is a Freelance Writer, Ghost writer and Columnist.

“I was born in South Africa and stepped onto a plane to bring me to a new life in Toronto, Canada in 1999 and have not looked back. It took me 38 years to figure out what I wanted to be when I grow up. Now I love what I do and do what I love. I uncover stories hiding in plain view, but they are remarkable nonetheless. I believe that everyone has a story to tell…and sometimes truth really is stranger than fiction. These are the things I write about.”  Learn more

What My TBR pile looks like now and how I am making a change in 2018

It is the start of a brand new year and one thing I have learned is that I was kidding myself. Kidding myself in thinking that I was superwoman. *Sadly I have no cape. You know, I was thinking I could do it all. *cue the epic music.

After seven years of going at breakneck speed, in blogging, reviewing, freelance writing, publishing and you name it, I have decided that I really was being unrealistic. My concept of my limits was way out of wack and 2018 is the year I am going to change that! I mean, after all, my family (bless them) were getting a frazzled mom/wife and I decided, ENOUGH! I honestly just had to clean up my inbox and reduce it from 3000 unread emails/notifications, down to just under 200 now. I am not kidding. Getting it under 200 is not perfect, but manageable.

This change is happening on all fronts, find out what is up and what is going down in 2018 for me.

The Soldier Who Killed A King

David Kitz is a Bible dramatist, an award-winning author, a convention speaker and a retired public school teacher. It might seem a little odd to you that I would be reading a book about the Passion of Christ at Christmas, but in actual fact, it made Christmas all that more meaningful to me. Here I explain why.

Out of the Ordinary by Jen Turano

When a Jen Turano book comes out I drop everything, cancel and my appointments ( well, not really, but I wish I could) and I read. Her latest, Out of the Ordinary did not disappoint and provided the laugh-out-loud moments I have come to expect from Jen Turano’s Historical Fiction.

The Day The Angels Fell by Shawn Smucker

The Day The Angels Fell was not at all what I expected. It was a little bit, Piercing the Darkness meets…Lois Lowry. At first, I was not sure where the book was going, (mainly because I never read the back cover) and I was glad I stuck to it because by the end all my questions and concerns were addressed and I understood the meaning and significance of the things happening at the beginning of the book much better. This book is the debut novel by author, Shawn Smucker.
