A.L. Mengel is an Award-Winning author of critically acclaimed Supernatural Fiction, Science Fiction, and Paranormal Fiction. He also has published two creative self-help books: one which covers creating, another which covers marketing. In 2013, A.L. Mengel's debut novel "Ashes" was published by Parchman's Press.

A book was released in 2015 under the same name, which was his #1 seller of that year. The #Writestorm methodology has been adopted by authors worldwide on several continents through several Facebook groups, one in particular, The #Awethors. Writers meet and hold timed "group writing sessions" and adhere to the rules outlined in Mengel's methodology presented in the #Writestorm book. In 2016, Mengel delved into Science Fiction with his novel "The Wandering Star", which holds position as his highest pre-ordered book to date. His epic magnum opus "War Angel" released worldwide in Fall of 2016, which some have called his best work.

The book was a contender for the Best Novel of 2020 by the International Book Awards. Besides writing fiction, A.L. Mengel also publishes a blog called "Do Dogs See in Black and White?".
