ABOUT MELYNDA & CUPPA T

20210624_144235.jpg

   I'm Melynda Kiring, a writer/actress in the San Francisco Bay Area in California. I've been writing all my life, but in 1997 I decided that I wanted to write stories for people other than myself. And so, I began. And while drinking pot after pot of tea, Cuppa T Books naturally happened.

   There are several ways you could have found your way here: 1) You know me. 2) You are on my yearly December Story List and wish to know more about my writing. 3) You found one of my cards. 4) You have seen me onstage. 5) You have seen my play Quadrille. 6) You are a Horror fan who has seen "All Through The House", and somehow found your way here. (Yes, I'm squinting at you.) 7) You clicked a link from a convention exhibitor list. 8) You have visited Dlyssoday.com and followed the link.

But no matter the reason, I am grateful you took the time to visit.

   Cuppa T Books  is a glorious one-woman show. I write the stories, I design the covers, I format the text, I get the books printed. (If you're on the December Story List, I actually snail-mail them out.)  It's usually tasks that should be done by a fleet of efficient Victorian secretaries, ink-stained graphic artists and frowning accountants. But it's just me. And I still drink a lot of tea. 

   Currently I am offering four books for sale: the ongoing fantasy The Tale of D'lyssoday - books one and two; the script of the romantic play Quadrille, and the charming story, The Silkai. More will become available when I get down to brass tacks regarding the 14 books I've written as December Stories.

   Since I've mentioned it three times, the December Story is a yearly printed original story that I send to people as a gift. They're mighty spiffy!

I've been writing The Tale of D'lyssoday since 1997. The histroy of this story can be found here!

   I write because I think these stories come to me for a reason, and that is a big responsibility.

   It is an honor to be read, and to share these fanciful tales with the people who discover them.
