Hi, my name is Meelie and I am a 29 year old writer from South West England.
Currently unpublished (seeking agent representation), I work full time for the NHS and love every second of it.
I find inspiration in people, music, long train journeys, and big cities.
Optimist. Student. Adventurer.
Work in Progress
For years, I’ve written thriller/crime novels. Now, I am working on something completely different, a story from as close to my heart as is possible to get. I am finding it a joyful challenge to write!
Behind the Front Desk
Behind The Front Desk is a contemporary drama inspired by secrets, suicide, and Springsteen. It is a tale of humanity, heroism, and hope.
When Tammy Drake accepts a job as a medical receptionist, she has two goals; don’t quit, and don’t let them know you’re dying. As she tackles the challenge, Tammy collides with three others, all harbouring secrets of their own. Abrasive patient, Matt, is sinking lower everyday, while refusing to tell his GP what’s really happening. Elderly Mrs Varma comes in daily, desperate for somebody to talk to. And Dr. James is struggling in silence, while doing all he can to save the lives of his patients…and his colleagues too.
As these four diverse personalities intertwine, they soar between dizzying highs, and plummeting lows.
Because they are all keeping secrets.
And it is only in revealing them that they may have a chance to save themselves.
