A place for that brief reading escape.
Hey there, I’m Mel A ROWE, a Writer and Weekend Wanderer, trying not to get too lost outback of Northern Australia. With an allergy to all things corporately serious, I create short pieces that alternate from flash fiction, short-short stories, and poetry. As an introvert, this site started my publishing journey. It became my pallet-cleanser as a way to explore other avenues of writing besides my novels, found at MelAROWE.com.
What is R&R Ramblings?
It stands for Rural Romantic Ramblings:
(R) = Rural:
I hide in a place where most Australians consider a remote, rural location known as the Northern Territory’s Top End. Where many locals say, we’re surrounded by more cattle and crocodiles than people!
(R) = Romantic:
The dictionary says, “…someone who is idealistic but impractical. Passionate and imaginative, rather than having order and form.”
Yep, pick me! My novels are dished up with witty humour, quirky characters, and fun family units. I’m known for reinventing romantic versions of home, taking my common characters on uncommon journeys that lead from boardrooms to billabongs as they try to find their own Escape to HAPPILY EVER AFTER. (#Escape2HEA)
As for the flash fiction, prose, and poetry on this site, I cover all genres, where-ever my muse may lead me. I’ve been graced with a few awards, contributed to the global Poets of the World via ByMyPoetry; and my short works, short stories, and flash fiction can be found in various international literary publications.
Winner of the NT Author Mentorship with Hachette Australia in 2017; I was short-listed for Best New Author by AusRomToday Readers’ Choice Awards in late 2018. I also blog on my author site, MelAROWE.com.
So, yeah, I kinda like to write … stuff!
Again, the dictionary states, “…it is to wander without a definite route…”
Duh! As a wanderer in not only words but on weekends I explore my unique backyard on random road trips, fumbling with my camera, all while I annoy the family with my atrocious singing from my updated playlists. (Seriously, I’m really that bad!)
Anyway, this site is for that quick read, and read purely for entertainment. Pleeeeeese DON’T BE TOO PICKY on my grammar, I’m only doing this for fun. And honestly, it’s my fingertips that tap-dance across the keyboard following my imagination to produce the story of the moment.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I thank you for the follow (I hope) so that we may meet again.
