Halle Merrick, Editor

Halle Merrick is the founder and editor of Haunted Words Press. She could also very well be a ghost that occasionally haunts the Cornish and Somerset countryside - we're still trying to find evidence that says otherwise.

At a young age she was writing about spirits roaming the halls, abandoned castles leading to fantastical lands, and terrible accidents creating unlikely heroes. Nobody stopped her, so she pursued a career in it.

She holds a Bachelor's in Creative Writing and a Master's in Professional Writing from Falmouth University, and is currently undertaking doctoral research into queer young adult literature.
