EJ Fisch is a long-time fan of the science fiction genre. She'll readily admit that she has has a vivid imagination, which can be both a blessing and a curse. She has been writing as a hobby since junior high and began publishing in the spring of 2014.

When she's not busy writing, she enjoys listening to music, working on concept art, gaming, and spending time with her animals. She currently resides in southern Oregon with her family.

Other…moreWell, some of the character names (Jayden, Kade, Adin, etc.) are obviously normal "human" names, sometimes with a little twist on the spelling. Other names were inspired by different sources. Ziva actually came from Ziva David on NCIS - the character was introduced to the show right around the time I was starting to develop my Ziva (back when she was a little baby filler character!). Zinni was inspired by one of my cats. Any time I hear of a person or a street or a town with a somewhat odd name or, I write it down. A lot of my other character/location names are just words I made up. For example, Aroska was one of the names that randomly came to me one day - it was originally supposed to be kind of a unisex name, but in the end I thought it would be better for a guy. In cases like that, I try to come up with a last name with contrasting vowel sounds. I have a big stash of all the names and words I've come up with over the years, organized by what would sound better for people, planets/cities, and materials. So whenever I need to create a new character or name the capital city of some planet, I reference that list and see if there's anything I like. I currently have two full notebook pages of names (three columns across) as well as a list on my phone. I've also used online generators for some of the material names, just so I'm sure it's an element or metal or something that doesn't already exist ;)(less)

I've got another blog post in the works that should be coming through in the next couple of days, detailing why I haven't made much progress on Fracture and why that's starting to change (hint: I've learned something about myself while working on this book, and I'm going to talk about it). Now, you may be thinking, "But EJ, haven't we heard all of this before?" Well, yes, but this time is d... Read more of this blog post »

“You know, I've always admired you for seeming so selfless and trying to shift the blame to yourself, but then I got to thinking...." He turned around to address her directly, and his eyes were colder than she'd ever seen them. "Maybe you just can't stand the thought of everything not being about you.”
E.J. Fisch, Ronan

“What do you think you're going to do with an antique rifle?"

"Probably shoot something with it.”
E.J. Fisch, Nexus

“He glanced to the walkways on either side of him, wondering what the chances were that he would actually catch sight of Ziva. Keeping an eye out for someone who didn't want to be found - especially when that someone was Lieutenant Ziva Payvan - was as close to futile as something could get. It wasn't a matter of finding her, but rather of her making herself known when she saw fit.”
E.J. Fisch, Nexus
