Melody Wingfield writes dark fantasy, horror, erotica, and epic mythology. Drawing from over 30 years of esoteric and occult research, her work contains elements of magic, ritual, mythology, folk tales, the paranormal, and more.
Her current project is The Lost Daughter, Book 1 of The Necromanteon — a retelling of the story of Hades and Persephone. Written for adult fans who want their Greek mythology to have some teeth, the series melds the worldbuilding of epic fantasy with elements of horror, romance and alternative history/mythology.
In addition to her book series, Melody writes as the goddess, Hekate, telling her ongoing story and connecting with other witchy folk on Twitter and Instagram. She also writes as the villainess, Elizabeth Bathory, The Blood Countess, for the legendary Myths Of The Darkness project. When not writing, she teaches writing classes and workshops, does voice acting, and has just recently wrapped a two-year writing podcast called Method and Muse.
She currently lives in the Scenic City of Chattanooga, TN with her daughter who is a full-time college student pursuing a double-major in photography and cinematography.
