ML Hamilton

Biography

ML Hamilton has been teaching high school English and journalism in Central California for the last 19 years. Teaching students to appreciate literature has made her career rewarding; however, she always dreamed of publishing her own novel.

In 2010, the dream came true. Her first novel, Emerald, was published by Wild Wolf Publishing. The sequel to Emerald, The Heirs of Eldon, followed the next year. In the summer of 2011, she decided to publish her contemporary fiction, Ravensong.

In addition to teaching and writing, she has three sons, three dogs, and two cats. If she isn’t writing, you can find her at a band concert, a baseball game, or running an agility course with her beautiful Golden Retriever Cricket.
