E.L. Reed (Emma Leigh Reed) received her MA in English and Creative Writing with a concentration in Fiction at Southern New Hampshire University. She grew up in New Hampshire being an avid reader and spending hours at the local library, even working there one summer. We all have struggles in life, but Emma took her struggles and the emotions that came with them, and poured them into her books. Writing was not only cathartic, but became a way of connecting with readers who can relate.
Emma’s writing career started in 2010 and now she has published five romantic suspense books, two women’s fiction under the pen name of Emma Leigh Reed, and two in crime thrillers under E.L. Reed. Emma has also co-authored children’s books in the past geared towards children with sensory issues.
She lives in Middle Tennessee where she teaches English at a local community college full time, and part time at a university in Nashville. She spends her time when not writing or teaching reading, studying mythology, and watching hockey (go Preds). She spends time back in New Hampshire with children and grandchildren.
Emma belongs to the Sisters in Crime organization. You can find her at emmaleighreed.com or elreedauthor.com, as well as on Instagram, Tiktok, and Facebook.
