Meet R.L. Merrill

It’s not every day that an author you adore and admire sashays her way into your Facebook Messenger with a tantalizing proposition, so when it happens, the only appropriate response is, “where do I sign?” I met Robyn years ago—back when my own stories were just embryos—during a Facebook event and have been giggling my way through her posts and books ever since. As a former dancer whose children opted NOT to follow in their mother’s footsteps, I’ve lived vicariously through her dance mom experiences and relished in the knowledge that this prim and proper lady swears almost as much, if not more, than I do. I’m grateful to be sending my Minded characters into the Magic and Mayhem Universe this summer and will basically follow Robyn Peterman devoutly until the end of time.

R.L. Merrill brings you stories of Hope, Love, and Rock ‘n’ Roll featuring quirky and relatable characters. Whether she’s writing about contemporary issues that affect us all or diving deep into the paranormal and supernatural to give readers a shiver, she loves creating compelling stories that will stay with readers long after. Winner of the Kathryn Hayes “When Sparks Fly” Best Contemporary award for Hurricane Reese, finalist in the InD’Tale RONE contest for Typhoon Toby, and finalist for the Foreword INDIES 2019 for Summer of Hush, Ro spends every spare moment improving her writing craft and striving to find that perfect balance between real-life and happily ever after. She writes diverse and inclusive romance, contributes paranormal hilarity to Robyn Peterman’s Magic and Mayhem Universe, and works on various other writing and mentoring projects that tickle her fancy or benefit a worthy cause. You can find her connecting with readers on social media, educating America’s youth, raising two brilliant teenagers, trying desperately to get that back piece finished in the tattoo chair, or headbanging at a rock show near her home in the San Francisco Bay Area! Stay Tuned for more Rock ‘n’ Romance.
