About Angel

Writer Angel Leigh McCoy (SFWA & HWA member) creates horror and dark fantasy fiction. Her fiction has appeared in numerous media, and her novelette “Charlie Darwin, or the Trine of 1809” was published by Nevermet Press. She also had stories appear in Strange Aeons, Necrotic Tissue, Beast Within 2, Fear of the Dark, and Growing Dread: Biopunk Visions, among others.

Her story “Crack O’Doom,” printed in the anthology Fear of the Dark earned her an honorable mention in Ellen Datlow’s Best Horror of the Year, volume 4, 2012.

She co-edited the Deep Cuts: Menace, Mayhem, & Misery, an anthology of fantastic short stories designed to pay tribute to women horror writers. It includes 19 stories by men and women both, as well as many recommendations for short horror stories written by women. During her six years as the voice director and head editor at Wily Writers, she edited and produced more than 70 audio short stories, published two Best Of anthologies, and spearheaded the Twilight Zone tribute anthology: Another Dimension.

She spent two decades as a game writer for both tabletop and video game companies, including ArenaNet (Guild Wars 2), Microsoft Game Studios, White Wolf, FASA, and other RPG companies. While working at Xbox.com, she was the official game correspondent Wireless Angel.

Angel lives with Boo, Simon, and Lapis Lazuli (kitties) in Seattle, where the long, dark winters feed her penchant for all things spooky and cozy.
