E.J. Runyon lives in the US North East. Since 2002 she’s found herself moving on to smaller and smaller towns, while working to become the author and writing coach she planned on being.

Now, her life revolves around her own writing and Bridge to Story – an online creativity coaching business she runs– and you know, being a better person day to day.
E.J.’s passion is focused on writing fine prose and on getting folks writing, her aim is coaching them in writing well. She participates yearly in National Novel Writing Month – an event she’s been involved in since 2001. Several of the short stories in Claiming One are excerpts from her many in-progress and published novels, written during various NaNoWriMo years.
