Hilarious

It’s always a great day when Mel and Ed get together to share their thoughts about...everything! It’s as addictive as eves dropping on old friends having lunch at the next table. Make my reservation! More please!

Love the behind the scenes insight

I’ve just finished listening to your podcast on how you became an historical fiction writer with Alice I Have Been... and loved the peek behind the scenes. Hope we’ll hear more! Thank you!

Smart, funny and engaging

Writers Melanie and Ed talk about how their different but occasionally intersecting life paths led them to become bestselling writers. Their conversation was smart, funny, and engaging, and I’m looking forward to future episodes and topics! Definitely a keeper on my subscription list!
