E.M. was born and raised in Iowa, and has always had a love for learning and exploring. She has been writing since 1998 and started her first novel in 2000. Writing and drawing have gotten her through tough times, commemorated good times, and filled many hours fondly remembered. She loves mythology, biology, fantasy, animals, suspense, and realistic characters. The characters that nearly hop off the page and speak with you are her favorite kind.
She loves running and water, cats and dinosaurs, and her favorite foods are made with tomatoes. She needs the outdoors – preferably forests – to relax and feel at ease. Unfortunately she does not have much of a green thumb and she’s allergic to pet dander. She lives with her husband and daughters.
