about me

I can be contacted privately at hudson_melissa@rocketmail.com

I am a foster carer living in Surrey. I love my job and have had lots of placements over the past five years. I also love writing and have been working on two crime novels over the past three years.

One of them, Lessons in the Dark, is posted on this site. I am hoping to get some enlightening reviews - it will be fascinating, and hopefully not too disappointing (!) to read other opinions of my work.

I'm always up for a read swap so feel free to message me.

Hi Debbie, Fabulous idea for a children's story - it's one that would really make them think too, about how easy their lives are! Amusing and witty through the first few chapters, I found myself thoroughly entertained, despite the story being aimed at children. The story builds nicely through the ... view book

Maria, What a powerful, compelling memoir - you write wonderfully well and I couldn't stop reading. You swept me along with lots of emotions - I was so sad when grandma died and so fearful of all that is to come for the young Maria. Your narrative flows really well and I think you've pitched it j... view book
