EC Roche


E.C. Roche is the self-published author of Searle Lorden and the Elixir of Death – a riveting new work of fantasy fiction that promises to live up to the legacy of Rowling’s Harry Potter and Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings.

E.C. Roche took the gamble that many of us have always wanted to take. She transitioned from journalism to pursue her greatest passion – storytelling, and devoted her time to write and publish her first fantasy-fiction novel, Searle Lorden and the Elixir of Death. Her gamble could have cost her dearly and was a difficult one to take, but she chose not to settle for anything less than her dreams.

Now her gamble has paid off. Barely two months since it hit the bookstands, Searle Lorden and the Elixir of Death has already received consistent 5-star reviews from readers and fantasy fiction enthusiasts. Her book, the first installment in an epic fantasy fiction trilogy, chronicles a young hero’s adventure-filled quest for freedom amidst perilous and spell-bound worlds. The second installment is already on its way to publication and is set to be released within the year.

E.C. Roche’s success is proof that we can still pursue our dreams and greatest passions even in the face of crisis. Her story is an inspiring tale of faith, passion, and persistence – a story that we can all relate to and gain strength from. She has overcome all discouragements and obstacles on her way to success, and is now happily devoting her time to doing what she loves best – breathing life into exciting and innovative stories for teens and adults alike.

E.C. Roche, self-published author and devoted mother, is excited to share her personal story to others who are considering a change in careers or who also share the dream of publishing their own novel.

Just recently, while working on the sequel to the epic fantasy Searle Lorden series, Emma has completed a horror and suspense novel called Render. Available soon.
