ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Ember loves all things with heat! A glass of wine, a comfy, oversized sweater, and a spicy book next to a fireplace is her ideal night. She likes to read about powerful heroines and protective heroes, and write about them, too.

When she’s not writing, Ember is a fox in the henhouse, causing all kinds of hell. She enjoys making pasta while listening to big brass bands, taking long walks with her favorite audio books, and painting—but not very well.

Some of Ember’s favorite authors include Laura Thalassa, Shannon Mayer, and Raven Kennedy. Their powerful heroines inspire her daily to get out of bed and to do her best (or stay in it to keep reading!)

Tell us a little bit about yourself, your hobbies and interests.

I love all things with heat! A glass of wine, a comfy, oversized sweater, and a spicy book next to a fireplace is my ideal night. I like to read about powerful heroines and protective heroes, and write about them, too. When I'm not writing, I'm a fox in the henhouse, causing all kinds of hell. I enjoy making pasta while listening to big brass bands, taking long walks with my favorite audio books, playing D&D, and painting—but not very well.

When and why did you start writing books?

My passion for writing started at a very young age when I wrote "The Little Mermaid" fanfiction. I was only five, and didn't yet know what fanfiction was, but these early stories and the support from my mother would led me to write more than twenty books under three different pen names by 2023.

What made you decide to tackle writing as a career?

Storytelling is like breathing; I'll die if I don't get to spin my tales.

Which one of your books or characters is your favourite?

My current favorite character is Dante from The Starlite Heist, Fae Prison: Earth Book 2.

Which one of your books was the hardest to write and stretched you the most as a writer?

I'm struggling most with Fae Prison: Earth 3 at the moment. Juggling promoting book 1 and preparing for the launch of book 2, early production of art and editing for a new 1st in series and writing the 3rd in the FPE series as an indie has stretched me to the limits.

Who is your favourite author and book?

Some of my favorite authors include Laura Thalassa, Shannon Mayer, Raven Kennedy, Elizabeth Helen, and Carissa Broadbent. Their powerful heroines inspire me daily to get out of bed and to do my best (or stay in it to keep reading!)

What book are you reading right now?

Slaying the Vampire Conqueror by Carissa Broadbent and Woven By Gold by Elizabeth Helen.

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

Every day life. My brain is an intake machine that spins stuff from the mundane. Anyone can say anything and I'll have a book idea for it in under a minute. Dreams help, too.

What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?

Other than reading, playing Diablo right now.

Do you have any new books in the works?

Fae Prison: Earth 3, The Phoenix Bloodline, and a brand new dark fantasy romance series titled The Princesses of Ruin. Book 1 is complete in that series, and 2 is what I'm starting next.
