Writing as Emma Elliot

   I've always fancied myself a sleuth. While I have the requisite tweed coat, magnifying glass, and loyal sidekick (standard poodle Aidan), I spent my nights at the local police department maintaining its records rather than fighting crime. On paper, though, I untangle riddles and follow the clues as I write gripping mysteries that explore the labyrinth of the human psyche, the bonds of friendship and family, and the rippling effect of violence and betrayal.

"Elliot weaves her story so masterfully and throws you for so many loops that you are engrossed in the story the entire time, and are never disappointed by the obvious choice. It's romantic without being cliche, steamy without being erotica."
