Angel Leigh McCoy writes horror and dark fantasy fiction. She is the mastermind behind the Dire Multiverse fiction and audio drama projects at Games Omniverse and the Wyrdwood dark fiction series. In the Wyrdwood series, she has written her first suspenseful trilogy, "The Wyrdwood Welcome", and two alternate history tales: a novelette titled "Charlie Darwin, or the Trine of 1809" and a short story, "Nurse Magdaleine."

Her collection of short Horror fiction, called Dark was the Night came out in 2020. In addition, her stories have appeared in Best Women's Erotica of the Year Vol. 5, Changing Breeds: Wild West Tales —a shifter anthology for White Wolf's World of Darkness, Strange Aeons, Necrotic Tissue, Beast Within 2, Fear of the

Wyrdwood Welcome in audiobook!

This is so exciting. Finally, the entire Wyrdwood Welcome trilogy is available in audiobook format! Woo hoo!

Narrator Kendra Murray knocked it out of the park on these, and my hope is that people will really feel drawn into the Wyrdwood world with these books.

I'm working diligently on the next trilogy, so that's something to look forward to!

Celebrate!
Wishing you all the best,
Angel...

The audiobook was amazing. The narrator did such a great job with the characters, bringing them to life.

Not for the weak stomach, and well worth the read. Similar in tone to classic gothic tales like Bram Stoker’s Dracula, especially in the beginning, Then it quickly takes on more 20th century tones like a good Mary Stewart.

Stan Law A belated thanks for choosing me to be among your friends, Jerry. It may interest you that my book Marvin Clark—In Search of Freedom in now a matching FREE download on Amazon Kindle. This is not SF, but you might be well amused. Enjoy it while you can. (A little review on Amazon wouldn't hurt either!)

I blame the fact that I tried to read it for the first time when I was already well into being a grown up. :) Perhaps if I'd read it as a child, I'd have liked it better. I found it stuffy and overblown. But, that's me. :)

Alan Baxter Hi Angela

You've certainly got an interesting career going on - I have friends that would kill for your job!

I noticed you only gave 1 star to The Hobbit. Why was that? You must be the only person I know that doesn't like it. :)
