The Dark Forest of Meriment

You have found the online home of speculative fiction writer Meri Elena. This site is under construction.  Please excuse the disaster.

Hello, traveler. My name is Meri Elena, and I welcome you to my dusty corner of the interwebs. This is where you can keep up with the latest news about book releases and events, as well as explore my expanded universe and find out more about me. I'm sure you know how to click through tabs, so I'll leave you to it.


As always, merry reading.

Meet Me at Raleigh Supercon - One Day Only!
I will be at the Prospective Press booth at Raleigh Supercon all afternoon, until the dealer room closes at 8 pm, handing out bookmarks and signing books, like I do. This is the only day I will be there, so don't miss your chance! The press will be around all weekend, however, so you can still buy Nightfall (*hint hint*).
