Merrie P. Wycoff
Growing up in San Jose, CA, I unearthed my passion for Egypt at The Rosicrucian Museum. I graduated from CSUC with a degree in Public Relations and Italian and studied art and culture in Florence, Italy. After college, I worked for The Nevada State Journal/Reno Evening Gazette writing feature stories for the Entertainment Section. Los Angeles and the beach called to me. I landed my dream job at Entertainment Tonight as a lead story Segment Producer where I also wrote, directed and edited. Later my husband and I formed an infomercial company, and I wrote and produced several direct response spots and marketed products for retail. Having traveled extensively throughout Egypt, I studied with an ancient wisdom keeper and uncovered an entirely unique perspective of this culture. My first paranormal historical novel in the Shadow Saga, Shadow of the Sun reveals the struggle of Pharaoh Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti as told through the eyes of their first daughter, Princess Merit-Aten.
My recently released book, Born in Orgasmic Bliss details my spiritual journey in turning pain into pleasure in the birth of my two children. This book will empower any woman who wants to transform her own birth experience, and create a deeper, more intimate connection with her partner and unborn child.
I have a Masters Degree in Metaphysics, a Ph.D. in Comparative Religion with Sedona University, and am finishing my Egyptology Certificate through the University of Manchester in Great Britain. Currently, I reside in Colorado and am a member of the Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers, the Crested Butte Writers, AuthorU, and the Egyptian Study Society.
