Local teacher enjoys writing and recalls her heritage in her works

Published on April 08, 2014 with No Comments

Sylvia Melvin’s affection for the written word has roots in her Canadian heritage. She grew up in a small village in northern Ontario at her family’s fishing lodge. Often, books were her companions and she began journal writing as a young adult.

Today, although she lives in Florida, she uses those experiences to entertain and educate her readers in the short stories and novels she writes.

Sylvia presently works as an intervention-reading teacher at W.H. Rhodes Elementary School in Milton. She enjoys teaching creative writing to her pupils and believes that reading and writing go hand in hand.

As a founding member of the Panhandle Writer’s Group, Sylvia feels the interaction between other members has motivated her to publish and market short stories and six novels—Summer Guest, Helena: Unwavering Courage, Southern Sage: The Honorable Woodrow Melvin, Death Behind the Dunes, Death Beyond the Breakers, and Death On Blackwater Bay.
