My journey in writing has been a meandering one. I have dipped my toes in periodically through out my life, wiggling them around a little but before pulling them out again to focus on other things. I took a short dive into writing fanfiction for a few years as there were a couple inspired thoughts, one of my favorite images there was of a fight scene in Dragon Ball Z between the two character's Vegeta and Gohan, with the two of them using motorcycles as swords. my whole idea revolved around Vegeta acting as a super villain as a way to get some training with Gohan who was in the anime moonlighting as a superhero. I had a few other fanfictions I wrote, but never finished all of them as the inspiration died out. Then I found the writing group R/Writingprompts on reddit. A few of those prompts inspired me too write flash fiction stories. Usually just one scene. I dove head first into that and just wrote the stories quickly, posting them to share with people, usually as a first rough draft. A few of them were still great and others needed work to be better. During this time I thought of a few novel ideas that I'm still working on. A scifi book series and a magical mystery adventure. I am now creating stories off prompts for this podcast. Editing and revising them to make them into something enjoyable for myself, my guest hosts, and you our listeners.

Stephen Mellor (Dave)
Buchanan, Liberia, is where it all started. Then Sheffield, South Yorkshire, before Otterburn, North Yorkshire and back again to Sheffield. I am an ancient historian by education whose early writing aspirations were curtailed by family and personal tragedy. But now, the pen is in my hand and its systems go. Away from writing there is always Sheffield Wednesday, always. Not to mention still playing the beautiful game, and the now compulsory 'at my age' aching for days after. And singing along to bands with guitars, but never in tune - me that is, not them. Sharing my views on the state of the world with friends and whoever will listen through my Soundtracks. And traveling - you can never see enough new places. Love the Romans, and small comedy clubs, but the two things aren't connected. Co-host of the podcast Prompety Prompt, a podcast / gameshow with a twist for readers, writers, and listeners. And most of all there are two children, now grown up - well sort of - a boy and a girl who amaze, delight, inspire and confuse - but you wouldn't have it any other way.
