She’s also invested herself in various other creative mediums too, including audio dramas and video-games, clearly showing her diverse range of talents as a writer. Drawing from authors such as Neil Gaiman, Margaret Atwood, and Stephen King, she’s an inspired author with something different to say.

Creating entire universes within her stories, she’s produced a number of series over the years, with many readers returning each time. This has seen her become a huge success, becoming a writer with a lot to say, along with developing characters and arcs that are fully immersive. Narrating many of her works too, she invests herself at a variety of different levels, really getting involved in the creative process of storytelling. Speaking directly to the reader, she has definitely become a writer to watch, with her books now being a household name for many.

It’s her characters as well that have really caught the eye of readers around the world, with her naturalistic dialogue and voices. This has seen her provide dialogue for large mainstream video-games, making her a much sought after writer throughout the industry. Resonating with her audience, her characters and leading protagonists feel both wholly real and authentic, quite unlike few others in her field. With a lot more to come yet, she will continue writing for many years to come, with plenty of further titles planned for the future.

Early and Personal Life:
Born on the 13th of December in 1962, Angel Leigh McCoy was born and raised in Elgin, Illinois, in the United States. Reading countless horror and fantasy novels while growing up, she would go on to win an essay contest during sixth grade. Later studying French Literature in Champaign-Urbana, she attend the University of Illinois, which she’d soon graduate from.

She’d go on to work in role-playing games, becoming a regular fixture in the scene, starting out there back in 1994. Designing games for a number of big-named brands and companies, including Wizards of the Coast and Pinnacle to name a few, she’d apply her knowledge of fantasy, bringing her imagination to the genre and field. Currently still writing to this very day, she continues to put out work regularly, with a plenty more titles in the pipeline.

Writing Career:
Starting out through publishing work for the makers of role-playing games, McCoy would make her name building worlds. This would see her go on produce much of her own work, with many fantasy novels produced under her name, including the novella ‘Charlie Darwin, or the Trine of 1809’ in 2011. She’s also created the ‘Wyrdwood Welcome’ fantasy series, which she begun in 2020 with the novel ‘Stalking the Moon’.

Over the years she’s also produced a lot of books that build upon the lore of various different gaming properties. This includes titles like that found in the ‘Changeling: The Dreaming’ series, which she contributed to with her book ‘Pooka’. Just one among many, she has had an extensive writing and creative career, which will definitely carry on on for a long time.

Jumping the Moon
Originally brought out through the Wily Writers publishing outlet, this first came out in 2020 on the 24th of May to much acclaim. Marking the second title in the ongoing ‘Wyrdwood Welcome’ series of books, it provides the next instalment in the long-running collection of fantasy novels. With the series itself only being the first part set in the world of Wyrdwood, this follows the character of Viviane, as she comes to terms with the magical world around her.

This really brings the world of Wyrdwood to life for the reader, making it feel wholly real and tangible at the same time. Bringing the reader in, it develops the ideas from the first, evolving the the world both in terms of scope and scale. Clearly displaying McCoy’s imagination, it definitely manages to capture the essence of the fantasy genre, whilst also taking it in an interesting new direction.

With a host of mythology and magic surrounding her in this new magical world, Viviane is just about managing to take it all in. Arriving to Wyrdwood, there’s an ongoing political struggle, as ancient groups compete for the reigns of power above all else. Now, with Viviane there, they all realize that this is the person they’ve been waiting for to help wrest control certain hands. Where do her loyalties lie though? How will she deal with this magical new world? What will happen as she finds herself jumping the moon?

Hexing the Moon
This is the conclusion to the Wyrdwood trilogy, finishing the ‘Wyrdwood Welcome’ series of books, while also establishing the overall franchise. Initially released on the 28th of July in 2020, it was published not long after the others, once again coming out through the same label. This would offer a satisfying finale, following the protagonist of Viviane yet again, as it charts her ongoing arc in the realms of magic and fantasy. This really works at filling out the world that was created in the first two books as well, developing what will be an exciting and colorful new franchise. It also provides a sense of closure for the protagonist too, while also promising exciting new developments on the horizon as well.

Looking to fix the trouble she feels that she’s ultimately caused, Viviane puts her own life on the line risking it all. Her magical powers are rapidly growing by the day, and she must come to terms with this if she ever hopes to survive, facing a world filled with secrets. Now she must avert a war, all with the aim of avoiding the ultimate end of an era, as everyone could see an end to it all. Will she be able to cope with it all? Can she deal with her magical powers and avoid war? What will happen as she finds herself hexing the moon?
