Belinda Mellor was born in England, lived for many years in Ireland and now lives with her husband on a lifestyle block near Nelson; a place they came to on holiday some years back and forgot to leave.
Belinda studied theology at university and applied spirituality a few years later, and has been known to teach from time to time. Over the years she has received several awards for her writing. These days she does a fair bit of freelance editing, when she’s not goat milking or egg collecting. She has one daughter, who is away at college, and too many pets to count.
