Ghost In The Park - a novella by Ray Melnik
About the author

Just before college, Ray won first place in the National Pen Women Competition for his fictional short story, Distinction, as well as winning second place in the New York Best of City - The Written Word.
While attending college, Ray Melnik's course on existential literature opened a whole new world for him. He pursued a musical career as a singer and lyricist, after leaving college. In the early 1980s he was the lead singer for One Hand Clap and then Fine Malibus, with Steve Stevens, current guitarist and song writer for Billy Idol. In the late 1980s and early 1990s, Ray was engineer and co-owner of MANNIK Productions, a recording studio in the Snug Harbor Cultural Center, Staten Island, New York. In addition to lyrics, Ray, wrote a monthly column about pro audio for a music trade magazine, American Liverpool. Later moving into the field of technology as a network engineer and then architect, he wrote for the technology panel of a regional newspaper, Times Herald Record, and was the primary writer of articles based on home technology for the website New Technology Home. Ray currently works as a Senior Network Architect in New York City, New York and is a resident of Staten Island, New York. His first novel, The Room, published in September, 2007, is a story grounded in reason. His second novel, To Your Own Self Be True, the sequel, follows with the same intention. Burnished Bridge published March, 2010 is Ray Melnik's first novella, and is a love story written on a canvass of fictional science.


The Room - articles

Author: Ray Melnik
Melnik says that Harry, the main character in "The Room," will not be the main character in the next book. Harry, a computer wiring technician who has always been interested in science -- like Melnik -- believes that there is a natural reason for everything that happens in our lives. "My goal is to show those people who are not dogmatic, that there is another side and we deserve to be heard," said Melnik, who now lives in Salisbury Mills, N.Y. Like Harry, Melnik, 49, is recently divorced. He also has two young children, Leah, 10, and Kyle, 12. However, the only character in the book who is similar to a real person is Harry, Melnik said. "This is why the room is so central," Melnik said. "It's so important to me that people realize Harry's thoughts are his private thoughts and he's entitled to them," said Melnik, who was raised in a Catholic household. He noted that he studied science and religion before he decided on his beliefs. To Melnik, the book is not a work of science fiction because to him, science is fact. It is intended, instead, to be a work of imagination. LOOKING TO THE FUTURE Melnik was born in Travis and lived in several communities on the Island, including Grant City and Westerleigh. He also lived in Manhattan before returning to Travis in the late 1980s. He settled in Salisbury Mills about eight years ago. Melnik graduated from Susan Wagner High School and attended the College of Staten Island, where he began majoring in literature, learning about the existential views of those like Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre. He left college to join a rock 'n' roll band and through the years was in several groups, including Staten Island's Civil Tongue and the Fine Malibus. Melnik also is the former owner of recording studio Mannik Productions in Livingston. He returned to school and currently works as a network engineer in Manhattan. He also has written for different publications and is a feature writer for the New Technology Home Web site. "The Room" took him 13 months to complete and a second novel could be in his future. "There are thousands of books that tell the religious side," Melnik said.

In fact, anyone who has read Ray Melnik's previous novels "The Room" and "To Your Own Self Be True" knows Melnik takes ground-breaking scientific theories and creates impressive, often mind-blowing plots, but not sheerly for the technological magic or special effects, but to explore and develop his characters. Melnik is first and foremost a romantic and a student of the human character, and secondly, a writer of science fiction. - by Tyler R. Tichelaar - author of "The Marquette Trilogy"
