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.
This is the second edition of THE VIBRATING POND, a collection of fiction short stories written over several years, between 1975 and 2017. This reprint edition is larger, with new materials. The phrase 'Vibrating Pond' derives from my book of poetry titled 'The Hammer Bird,' published in 1985. The storylines are taken from everyday life. Hence, people loved it from their heart, and they relate themselves easily to the stories. According to the many happy readers, the writing style is so interesting that it hooks the audience all the time. Due to their short volumes, readers find it easy to read anytime they want. Thus, they can enjoy the essence of the stories whenever they like. However, the themes of the storylines are exceptional. The new book features forty-five 'works' of the author's own writings, consisting of a medley of prose, poems, but mainly short story narratives. The style is poetic, in the genre of 'magical realism.' Each story isn't so long in length, but I feel it captures the reader's attention right to the end!
