Hollywood The Write Way began in February 2008 originally as melodysimpson.blogspot.com. The site’s purpose is to publish entertainment reviews and interviews with actors, writers, comedians, musicians, singers, and others in the business, as well as cover various events in Hollywood and NYC.

Melody Simpson

Hi, there! I’m Melody Simpson, lover of books, Broadway, TV, and film! Aside from right here, I have written TV recaps, reviews, and more for OMFGTV, The Televixen, Buzzfocus, and TVOverMind.

Some random facts about me… I identify as Gryffindor (though like Hermione, Ravenclaw came close), a Renthead, and a Francophile. I used to co-host the first podcast dedicated to the hit Fox series, Glee. I am a massive Charmed, One Tree Hill, and Heroes fan and it’s no secret that sci-fi and magic have my heart. My favorite Disney movies are Aladdin, Mulan, The Little Mermaid, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and Tangled. My favorite Disney*Pixar movie is Inside Out.

I’m twenty-nine, born and raised in New Jersey and currently residing in Los Angeles, CA. I am represented by JL Stermer at New Leaf Literary Agency.
