More About Melodie Campbell
Melodie got her start writing comedy. In 1999, she opened the Canadian Humour Conference. She has over 200 publications including 100 comedy credits, 40 short stories and 7 novels. She has won 9 awards for fiction, and has been a finalist twice for the Derringer Awards (US) and twice for the Arthur Ellis Award (Canada). It didn’t start that way.
Mel has a commerce degree from Queen’s, but it didn’t take well. She has been a bank manager, college instructor, marketing director, comedy writer, and possibly the worst runway model ever.
Today, Melodie is the Executive Director of Crime Writers of Canada. Her Goddaughter mob caper series has been called “Hilarious” by Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine. Her humour column ‘Bad Girl’ appears in the satirical magazine, The Sage; Canada’s Best Source of Misleading News and Opinion.
Melodie was invited into the Toronto Press Club in1994. There is no truth to the rumour that she once did a somersault off the Press Club billiard table.
With two daughters to raise, Lynda and her husband moved into a lovely two storey mortgage in Burlington, a small city on the water just outside Toronto. While the girls are grown and gone, Lynda and her husband are still there. And yes, there is a cat – a beautiful, if spoiled, Birman.
