Manager, Harry Hartog's Warringah shop

Mel is the manager of Harry Hartog Warringah. Another tortured writer, obsessed with cats, coffee and books, she realises she is a cliché but breaks this mould by also practising mixed martial arts. She’ll talk your ear off about books and fighting, and books about fighting but will never start a fight about a book - book snobbery is her pet hate. She overuses exclamation marks and firmly believes in the power of m&m’s to solve any problem.
