Dr Mel Baker is an adult educator, international speaker, film & podcast producer, writer and artist. Mel has published 5 non-fiction books, produced and co-written one short film, associate producer for an Australian documentary which she was also in, and creator of two podcast shows. Each of these are inspirational, offering transformation and hope into individual’s lives through her own lived experiences.
Say My Name (2023) short film is based on my recent book Sleeping Under the Bridge. I teamed up with Rhoyce Nova, writer and director; Zachary Peel-McGregor, director of photography; and Quinn lead actor and composer to bring my younger life story alive in film. I am hoping that an expert film producer and director will take my story, and coming two books in the trilogy to form a 3-part film series. My story is inspirational providing hope through surviving childhood abuse, dire situations in Australia and overseas in war conflict zones, and further abuse in the Defence forces. It speaks into many peoples lives, into their own stories and to know that we as humans can triumph over anything we set our minds to achieve.
Book 1 of Sleeping Under the Bridge is out now, book 2 is currently being written - Building the Bridge, and book 3 will be coming out in two years, Climbing the Bridge. All information to the book series and film is on my website.
