  1. Hi Melanie, we were hoping to connect with you! We’re crowd funding a martial arts web series about a young girl, Black Kungfu Chick, and wanted to see if you would help promote on your sites. Please contact me. Rae

    1. Hi Rae! Sorry for the late reply. I’ve been out of town all weekend. I’ll get in touch….well, I’m having a hard time contacting you through WordPress. Please email the mdgwrites address listed at the top of the Contact Me page. I’d love to learn more about your project.

  2. Melanie,
    I was computer browsing and found your blog. So Glad to see you are successful and you do write very well. I shouldn’t be surprised about your writing skill and artistry! Life is good if not great here. I am retired, have a whole new life with lots of guy friends to play golf, pickle-ball, bike riding, walking, drinking coffee etc. as well as a great family and grandchildren. Since I am a wimp I would never consider your sport and I’m not sure I would want to meet you in a tournament situation and wind up on my derriere! Take care and keep writing ! Your Blog is fantastic and I’m certain your book will be great.

    1. Dr. Stoltz!! What a nice surprise to hear from you. Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog. I love taekwondo. It’s been a life changer. I’m glad you’re doing well. 🙂
