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.

"Disturbing and compelling

It's not often you get a warning not to read the book you're holding in the intro from the author. I'll just take a quick look at the first chapter, I thought. An hour and a half later, I was over half-way through the book an" Read more of this review »

Huh

Well, I didn't know what to expect when I started but I certainly didn't want to stop. The POV from Ehd is very unique and a bit hard to read at times, but it's obvious the writing style is based on the character so it elevates it a lot. Didn't ex
