Emily Ann Ward
Hey, I'm Emily! I've been writing since I was young. I wrote mostly fiction, but I've posted some nonfiction here, as well. I love it, it's so fun.
I grew up in Colorado, in Littleton, Loveland, and Fort Collins. I've moved around a lot, though, I can't stay too long in one place. I've traveled to South Africa, Zambia, the Marshall Islands, France, Switzerland, Spain, and Italy. My husband and I do a lot of traveling, and we plan to revisit Europe in the future.
We live in Salem, Oregon right now with our two cats. I read, write, cook, try to make money from home. My chicken enchiladas are awesome.
Hope you enjoy the writing!

When Aaron approaches Anna for help with his homework, she can’t deny her former best friend despite how much their strange telepathic connection freaks her out. Soon Anna finds out that nothing with Aaron is easy. Not their new found powers. Not the way she's falling for him even though she has a boyfriend. And certainly not the mysterious society Le Garde that wants to recruit them.

A good story with a really interesting concept! Although I think souls are tainted before seven. . .maybe my younger siblings swayed me ;)

Well, I'm hooked! This short story gives us just a glimpse into Luke and Sera's lives and their abilities: predicting the future and healing. Some of the prose in the beginning was repetitive, but the author has already painted an intriguing world. Definitely left me wanting more, especially with the semi-cliffhanger at the end. Plus, beautiful cover art!
