E.M. Markoff is a Latinx writer who was raised on a steady diet of Mexican folklore, anime, Roger Corman’s Edgar Allan Poe films, and unrestricted access to comics and books. Growing up, she spent many days exploring her hometown cemetery, where her love of all things dark began.

Upon coming of age, she decided to pursue a career as a microbiologist, where she spent a few years channeling her inner mad scientist. Her debut novel, The Deadbringer, is the first book in The Ellderet Series and won a Finalist medal in the Fantasy category in the 2017 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

She is an active member of the Horror Writers Association.

Cassandra (Thebookishcrypt) Thank you for finding me love! Hope you're having an amazing day!


message 2: by E.M.

E.M. Markoff I am trying to finish "The Wheel of Time" book 4 at the moment. When I start reading "...Zombies" i'll let you know if it's any good. Everyone at work loves "...Zombies" and the coffee shops around here have it as a fav among employee picks.


Alexis i'll have to check it out! Hey I see that you are reading that pride and prejudice and zombies. Is it any good? Would you recommend it? I love jane austen but I don't if I would like this book.
