USA Today and New York Times bestseller author, Ellery Adams, has written over thirty novels and can’t imagine spending a day away from the keyboard. Ms. Adams, a Native New Yorker, has had a lifelong love affair with stories, food, rescue animals, and large bodies of water. When not working on her next novel, she bakes, gardens, drinks vats of coffee, spoils her three cats, and snacks on black licorice. She lives with her husband and two children (aka the Trolls) in North Carolina.

Hi Maria!

Because I knew the contract on the Charmed Pie Shoppe series wouldn't be renewed (that series has the lowest sales of my traditionally published series), I left the ending of Breach of Crust open-ended so that I could continue the story once the rights reverted back to me. Unfortunately for readers, that could be a few years, which I why I'm focusing on other projects. None of my series ever go away, they just go dormant for a spell. Thanks for asking and I hope to have another installment available in the future.

Ellery Adams You're too sweet! It's definitely not the last. I just signed a contract for three more books in the series.

“I prefer cinnamon twists over scones because they’re easier to eat while I’m reading. That’s my main priority when it comes to food. Other people are obsessed with calories, nutritional value, antioxidants. I look at food and wonder: Can I eat that without having to put my book down?”
