E.M. Abel was born and raised a Marine Corps brat. She spent a large portion of her life moving and living in her mother’s home country, Japan. As a result, she gained independence and a unique perspective on the world. The youngest of three girls, E.M. Abel spent a lot of time alone in her room writing or sketching in her journals and dreaming up stories. Growing up, she wrote poems, short stories and articles for her high school newspaper. She also fell in love with art and discovered her deep need for self-expression.

Now, a Navy wife with two small children of her own, she still loves being creative and most of all translating her stories into novels. E.M. Abel, now referred to as E or Em by her friends and readers, can often be found

If you love it, let it go…

It’s been over 2 years since I published a novel. To some that’s a totally normal and reasonable amount of time but in the world I work in (self-published romance) it’s a lifetime. Maybe two.

In those two years, I’ve been sad, frustrated, determined, disappointed, pissed off, sad again and finally I just felt lost. Who am I if I’m not a writer? I thought I’d finally found my calling, my purpose,

I don't read a lot of historical romance and I've never read a pirate story but that didn't deter me from this book at all. I knew if Pam Godwin was tackling this new genre I was all in.

I have no regrets.

“Tears started to cloud my vision, and a single stream fell down my face. Wiping my cheek, I straightened my back and looked into my eyes. I wanted to make my mom proud. I wanted to show her I could be strong. Marcus had been wrong. I wasn’t free, but I wanted to be. I was tired of hurting, I was tired of being scared, and I was tired of doubting myself. I had to stop looking for love. I had to stop looking to other people to fill the void I carried in my heart.

If I wanted to be whole, if I wanted to be free, I had to be the one to cut the chains.”
E.M. Abel, Freeing Asia

“But I was also angry. I was angry with myself for giving my heart to someone who didn’t even know me, let alone love me back. I was ashamed that I’d tried to be someone I wasn’t just so I could feel wanted.”
E.M. Abel, Freeing Asia

“My shield might make me an asshole, but your shield acts more like a cage. It keeps you locked up.”
E.M. Abel, Freeing Asia
