Hi! I'm Angela Merlo. I'm a novelist, a journalist, and a Christian. I've been a finalist in contests like TNT's Horror Fiction Contest (2016) and the Indies Today 2019 Awards.

Despite my religious background, I find myself drawn to the shadows, exploring the supernatural in my fiction. While my tales may embrace darkness, they ultimately carry a message of hope and resilience. In the midst of the shadows, I believe there is always a glimmer of light, no matter how small it may seem.

"Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed." - CK Chesterton

This quote embodies the essence of my storytelling. Through my words, I aim to empower readers to face their own dragons, conquer their fears, and find strength in the face of adversity.
