With an English degree and a fondness for British literature, Elle Powers entered the publishing world as a maker of books in 2001. Since then, she’s been a steadfast bibliophile (a trait she attributes to genetics, being kin to Edgar Allan Poe). She writes from a turn-of-the-century farmhouse (which is six years older than Peter Pan), encircled by the Blue Ridge Mountains.
When she’s not scribbling, you may find Elle wandering the Virginia hills with a novel in hand and a dog by her side. She is currently writing a fictional memoir featuring Cousin Edgar; I Am Mister Poe is due out in 2019.
