Merle Amodeo remembers writing creatively as soon as she could form letters into words. She was born in Toronto in 1939.
She moved to Oshawa in 1978 with her husband and two children. Merle taught at elementary schools in Oakville and Toronto and at Durham College for more than thirty years including classes in creative writing.
She has published two poetry chapbooks Let Me In and Because of You. Merle is presently working on her second novel and continuing to write poetry as “soul food”.
