Mel Paisley

Mel is an author, illustrator, and general peddler of strange stories. Their work is summed up as a combination of magical realism, historical fiction, sci-fi, and a general abundance of queerness, often utilizing modern fairytales to open up a dialogue on mental illness that surmounts stereotype while expanding imagination. When not writing or painting, they spend their time drinking too much coffee, obsessively curating pinterest character boards, and working on an upcoming trans* health zine.
