Emily Eck

Biography

Emily is a Midwestern Gal, but could be anywhere as you read this. She gypsy's the country, as well as south of the border. Adventure feeds her soul and offers great writing material. She loves kids and working with kids, but can only handle caring for four-legged furry friends. A crazy dog named Darla has trained Emily to be her partner in life. Emily's vices include Swedish Fish, ignoring chores in favor of reading, and caring too much for people in her life. When she is not writing or gallivanting around North America, Emily works in some youth serving capacity. She chose to write this bio in third person as she is an Aries and found writing in first person ended up with her writing an excessively long life story. Aries like to talk about themselves. It is something Emily is working on being more mindful of.

Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
Him & Her is hard to explain without giving too much away. Yes, it's an interracial romance, but I believe it to be just a romance novel. The hero and heroine deal with many of the same challenges all relationships do. There is an added layer that brings Michael and Denise together that has nothing to with race, and is the foundation for their love. This is the focal point of the book and it will likely make you cry! I cried writing it. Happy reading!!
What are you working on next?
My current project is darker than anything I've written before. It's not dark in the erotic sense, but it's graphic. What I will say about the nature of the graphic content is that its all real. Each scenario is pulled from my current career as a social worker in a large city. You get a glimpse of social work as both the hero and heroine are social workers in the child welfare system. The book addresses how our early life informs the field of work we chose. It also explores how mental health issues don't go away until they're dealt with--no matter how hard one tries to power through it.

Our hero pulls our heroine out a funk. Can she pull him out of a mental health hole way deeper than she ever imagined existed?

Current Title (subject to change): The Violence of Birth

  • The Catherine and Carl Diaries ~ Complicated Hearts on Feb. 25, 2014

    This book was adorable! I loved seeing how Catherine and Carl navigated the waters of love. Reading it in a diary form also allowed the reader to get in both their heads and read their private thoughts. I thought that was really cool!
