Eleanor Merry was born and raised in beautiful Vancouver, BC and still lives there with her tiny human and her fiance. The offspring of a fairy queen and an undead warlord, she was brought up with an appetite for terror and beauty.

When she isn’t writing, she is a voracious reader with eclectic tastes which tends to lean towards horror and the twisted, however is known to indulge in dirty romances on the side. In all genres, nothing is off limits and she looks forward to sharing more of her own twisted and strange thoughts with the world.

Doesn't matter if they are total garbage words that make no sense, try to write every single day if you can even if its only 100 words. They do say "you can't edit an empty page" and man, is this ever true.

#2 - make friends! The author community, for the most part, are filled with amazing and helpful humans. So much of what I have learned has been passed down from other author friends. So don't be afraid to put yourself out there and say "Hi!"

#3 - don't be discouraged - success doesn't happen overnight. Even Harry Potter got turned down a good dozen times before it was published. If you are passionate about writing and sharing your words and stories than don't give up.

#4 - Read all the books! One of the best ways you can improve your own writing and find out what people want to read is to READ ALL THE BOOKS.

Also, I love helping people and being a mentor so if anyone has specific questions or whatever please never hesitate to reach out! I am far from a master, but always happy to impart what knowledge I do have.(less)

Book 2 in the Dead Aware series is up to edit phases, which is GREAT.

As well as plotting out book 3, the final book (for Max and Clara anyways) I am also toying with my NaNoWriMo 2019 project, which is going to be a bit different and me trying something outside the zombie realm...(less)

Best seller!

I am OVER THE MOON happy that yesterday, Dead Aware: A Zombie Journey got its first #1 best seller tag on Amazon in a young adult zombie category!

This was my debut, my first full length publication.
An idea I had for 15+ years and finally saw to fruition in 2019.
Month and months of writing, editing, learning, scrapping, tears, laughs and just time. A labor of love, yes. But still a labor.

Unsure

Rounding up from 2.5 stars.

Writing was okay, the head hopping was a bit distracting otherwise good.

Story was.. well.. disturbing to say the least. Some of it was a bit too much for me and I skimmed a few scenes but I did read it in one sitting

There aren't nearly enough quality post-apoc romances out there and it was such a relief to find this! Thea is a heroine I enjoyed. Though she's pretty independant and badass, she is still very much real and flawed. Her relationship and how it develo ...more
