Una-Melina’s writing has been Freshly Pressed by WordPress and featured on Weekend Reads.

“The writer at Worthy Books & Things weaves a nostalgic story about her childhood, family, sister, and death. She crafts a sensory narrative composed of fragments, each starting with “I remember . . .” and the build up of these fragments — and memories — results in a beautiful piece about growing up and simply remembering. But it’s layered, and not all sweet — the writer deftly recounts a life that is at once beautiful but sad.”

– Cheri Lucas Rowlands, WordPress News


In addition to this blog Una-Melina’s writing has been featured on art & faith websites, Christian ministry publications and a few other blogs around the web.  She’s written/co-written many songs registered with ASCAP.  Her award-winning poetry has also been published in several poetry collections, as well as being selected for additional (unsolicited) poetry publications.

“Una-Melina’s verse is wonderfully expressive…”

“displays a unique perspective and original creativity…

                                                                                                        …exceptional poetry.”
