Ex-lawyer E.L. Farris is a born-again, marathon-running married mother of three who resides in Northern Virginia.

She is known on Facebook as Running from Hell with El, and can be found at http://runningfromhellwithel.com.

She explores the themes of thriving in the face of adversity, redemption, the pursuit of excellence and the ripple effect of helping others both in her fiction and in her upcoming novel, I Run: Running from Hell.
