About Me

Author + Editor + Project Manager + Content Producer + Website Designer

I’m Mellany Paynter

I’m a published author and writer with over 20 years of experience producing articles and features. In 2016, I published my first book and have since combined my passion for writing and project management to help individuals tell their stories through print and digital works.

I am a proud graduate of Howard University with a degree in Civil Engineering and extensive experience as a Project Manager.

I Create, I Write, I Coach!

Satisfied Clients



Cups of Coffee

In 2016, I wrote and published my first book, Dancing At The Crossroad – A Grief Recovery Journal. It was featured in African Voices magazine in 2017 and other publications.

My Skills

I write for individuals, big & small companies, printed publications, and blogs. Sometimes, I build websites, help bring projects to life, and even create marketing content. Other times, I help aspiring writers tell their stories and publish their works.

I’d love to hear more about you and explore the possibility of us working together.
