DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Twice Upon a Time is the story of a young man who finds himself in a complicated relationship with time and history. Travelling to a foreign land, Mike, my protagonist, learns that his past directly shapes his present and his future. But wait – does his past go deeper than he thought it did? As his journey in this narrative progresses, Mike learns that his life is entangled with history. There is no way out once you’re in the trap called time. Or is there? Read Mike’s story to find out. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did writing it.
A Bristolian by birth now
living in Southwest London and still constantly tormented by book ideas. COVID was helpful in getting two in the bag with several more in constant states of
construction, destruction & reconstruction. I don't pretend to be any sort of intellectual or literary
craftsman (and indeed I am not). But I find that the slightest event, comment
or observation can produce a flurry of embryonic ideas, some of which slowly
grow toward 300 pages! Besides scribbling, I am passionate about bees
and honey, integrity in the food supply chain and the importance of a gentle engagement with the environment.
