Melinda Holzschuh (who only ever goes by Mindi, but thinks names ending in ‘i’ look flaky in bylines) grew up in Texas, but asks that you don’t hold that against her. She loves dark beers, thundersnow, palindromes, hot springs, and traffic circles. She hates quinoa, low-flow shower heads, sand, compact fluorescent lightbulbs, and Swedish furniture megastores.
Melinda graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a couple degrees, but maintains that her greatest academic achievement is winning her high school’s annual Grammar Ninja award three out of four years. She remains disproportionately bitter about being robbed her sophomore year and is still demanding a rematch. (I’m talking to you, Travis Marshall.)
As you read this, there is an excellent chance she is hiding in the laundry room eating food she doesn’t want her children to see, trying to find her wallet/keys/phone/coffee/shoes, or awaiting her turn to plea bargain in traffic court.
Melinda lives in Denver with her handsome bearded life hostage, two perfect sons, and Golden Retriever. With any luck, she will someday own a Subaru and unlock genuine Coloradan citizenship.
