Writers Ink welcomes you!

Based in the Appalachian foothills of North Georgia and East Tennessee, I am an indie writer with the mountains in my blood.

For the genres I love, I have three pseudonyms:  M.A. Lee for historical mysteries and suspense, Edie Roones for fantasies in an alternate medieval world, and Remi Black for fantasies in an alternate Renaissance world.

who is the crazy lady Trying to Do all this?

I’m emmiD!

Me! When I first start pursuing my dream so many years ago!

I held off on my dream for many years. I peddled manuscripts to the big traditional publishers over and over and over. When I look back on those manuscripts now, they deserved to be rejected. When I started writing again in 2004, though, the publishing house gatekeepers were shutting off opportunities for new writers right and left while also in the process of destroying the midlist writers. I stopped submitting to them and started writing the stories that I wanted to tell.

Then came the ebook revolution! I started pursuing my writing dream in 2013, and in 2015 I self-published four novels. I haven’t looked back since.
