Mel Anastasiou, Acquistions Editor

mel-with-flowersMel is a senior acquisitions editor with Pulp Literature, and writes mysteries starring sleuths who are often fish out of water and gifted amateur ’tecs. Mel loves her writing life on Bowen Island, BC, and St Albans, UK, and she can be found every day writing and drawing, walking for miles to look at inspired Victorian architecture, and eating scones with clotted cream and jam, thus the walking.

She is the author of the illustrated writing guides, The Writer’s Boon Companion, Thirty Days Towards an Extraordinary Volume and The Writer’s Friend and Confidante.  Her novel Stella Ryman and the Fairmount Manor Mysteries is available through Pulp Literature Press, and her other mystery series, The Monument Studio Mysteries and The Hertfordshire Pub Mysteries can be found on
