Born in Poland in time to see the iron curtain go down, Mel has since lived in the US, the Netherlands, Belgium, and for the past ten years in the UK. She studied English literature in Poland and in the USA. A storyteller at heart, she wrote her first “book” at the age of eight. It was supposed to be the first one in a series – alas, the sequels never happened.


When she returned to writing, Mel tried her hand at screenplays and filmmaking. She directed several several short films, which screaned at several festivals and brought nominations and awards.


However, the creative freedom of writing fiction proved too tempting. After close to a decade spent working in film, Mel returned to her roots, working on science fiction novels and short stories.


And because one should never stop learning, she is now also pursuing a second degree in Astronomy and Planetary Sciences through Open University.

     I dwell in Possibility

       A fairer House than Prose

       More numerous of Windows 

       Superior – for Doors –


       Of Chambers as the Cedars

       Impregnable of eye –

       And for an everlasting Roof

       The Gambrels of the Sky –


       Of Visitors – the fairest –

       For Occupation – This –

       The spreading wide my narrow Hands

       To gather Paradise –


        Emily Dickinson
