E. L. Todd


E. L. Todd was raised in California where she attended California State University, Stanislaus and received her bachelor’s degree in biological sciences, then continued onto her master’s degree in education. While science is interesting and a hobby, her passion is writing. After writing novels as a small child, her craft grew until she found the confidence to show her closest friends—which is how Only For You, the first installment of the Forever and Always series, and the Soul Saga series began. When she isn’t reading or writing, she is listening to indie rock music. Her current favorite artist is Mumford and Sons, whom she credits most of her inspiration for her novels. She also enjoys running and swimming, as well as working as a high school teacher. She also works as an assistant editor at Final-Edits.com. She has an unusual obsession with dogs, even though she doesn’t own one, and her favorite vacation spot is Disneyland, which she visits several times a year. The most important aspect of her life is her friends, whom contributed so much time and energy into all of her novels. According to E. L. Todd, “Without them, Only For You and Soul Catcher never would have come to fruition. I am theirs forever.”

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
Indie publishing is amazing because it allows me to reach millions of readers everywhere. As soon as someone explained to me how it worked, I was hooked. Since we live in a technological age that allows people to download great novels at a reasonable price, it's a perfect situation. I'm so grateful that I have an outlet that allows people to read my works. Without an audience of readers to entertain, writing wouldn't be nearly as fun.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Some authors say it's the reviews they get, the fans they receive, or the connections they make with other people, and while those are all great experiences, my greatest joy is writing in itself. I live in another world and disappear from reality. I get to write down the conversations I hear in my head. My weirdness becomes productive.
