E. M. Epps is a writer and bookseller in Seattle, WA.

The E. and the M. do stand for real names, but they are not names anyone uses, even the author's mother. In her daily life, E. M. Epps goes by Emma, which is (to be clear) NOT a combination of the E. and the M.; it's a mid-length version of the long name that the E. stands for. Wait, was that clear?

Suffice it to say: do not call her Em, and all will be well.

You can visit her blog, which includes book reviews, recipes, photos, and the occasional travelogue, at blog.emepps.com.

“Cold Sandwiches and All” Book Trailer


The ever-magnificent Nina Post made this book trailer for my latest novel, Cold Sandwiches and All. I’m simply floored by how well it turned out. She must have spent hours and hours finding just the right pictures–not only are they perfect, but they’re quite witty, too! It is just utterly charming and well worth a wa

"4.5 star

At a time when I can barely bring myself to pick up a historical romance because I know exactly what I will get, along comes the wonderful Carla Kelly to remind me why I continue to read this genre. Her stories of very common, yet incredibly" Read more of this review »

Doing No Harm by Carla Kelly
