Song Parodies ->Authors -> Melanie Lee

Melanie Lee (aka Melanie N. Lee, mnl_1221) is a Queens, NY native with an MA in English-Creative Writing; her thesis was a musical playscript of a famous YA novel. She's a part-time tutor for City University of New York, and has also taught English 101. She's written three produced plays (including one in the New York International Fringe Festival, 2005) and three unproduced screenplays. She's also been a telephone interviewer, a radio monitor for ASCAP, and a party clown. A politically-liberal born-again Christian, she's spouted her opinions in several letters to the editor published in New York newspapers. Her theater reviews are on, and her snippets of advice on Yahoo! Answers and Sparknotes.

Melanie has enjoyed, at various times, making decorated cakes, Christmas ornaments, Halloween costumes, Easter bonnets, and offbeat evangelical tracts. She has a pretty good ear for harmony, wishes she could play the piano, and wishes she had the stomach for Broadway cattle calls. Oh, well—she gets to sing in the chorus of community theater musicals, including scaring audiences as Fruma Sarah in Fiddler on the Roof in Flushing, Queens.

She's furious over the current American corporate practice of "squeeze more work out of fewer workers for less pay", hates the egregious economic imbalance, and prays that Bush/Cheney won't stage a coup.

Her goal for this life is to create a work—poem, song, play, novel, movie—that will outlast her, inspiring and moving people.

She's thankful to for giving her a forum to hone her comedic and songwriting skills. BTW, if you know of a movie producer or director who'd like to film a screenplay about a group of twentysomethings forming a band in 1980 Queens, NY, please contact her: Blog:
