River Eno


River Eno is vegan. She grew up in Philadelphia watching Dr. Shock's horror theatre every Saturday. By the time the show ended, she was a self-professed authority on vampires and all things dark and disturbing. From Hammer Films' Dracula to the creepily romantic movies of the twenty-first century, vampires still fascinate, captivate, and charm her in gruesome yet hauntingly spiritual ways.

Not merely a watcher of the strange, River's also been reading and writing about similar topics since she was a small child.

River has been a practicing solitary Norse/Celtic pagan witch since she was twenty years old. A passionate gardener, woods walker, medicinal plant searcher, and studying herbalist, River also uses alternative medicine practices alternative life choices when the voices in her head aren't demanding she pay attention.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
I usually work from a laptop, so my desk is anywhere I am. I do have a desk, and it's full of desk stuff, pens, rubber bands, research material, note papers, post-its, a pile of books, and electronic device chargers. But I'm not sure how much actually writing I do there.
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing since I was a child. I didn't always like what I wrote or think it was relevant. I threw most of it away, which is sad because I'd like to see it now. I started writing seriously, with the intent to finish a book, when I was 28 years old. After my second child was born.
