Emily Jones is Elle Michael River
writer • storyteller • editor
I’m Emily Jones, writing as Elle Michael River. I write contemporary and speculative fiction and perform heart surgery on manuscripts missing their souls. I’m in the depths of revision on my debut, post-apocalyptic horror novel, but when I come up for air from the ruins of the American wasteland, I love penning short stories, blogs, articles, and book reviews. As a manuscript surgeon, I've worked on two novels ad a developmental editor, proofread various short fiction, and workshopped theatrical pieces. Right now, I’m channeling my inner Hermione Granger at Southern New Hampshire University for my MFA in Creative Writing, and I have my BA in English from Thomas Edison State University.
If you couldn’t tell, I run exclusively on hazelnut coffee, fluffy cats, and an unbridled weirdness some might call creativity. But I'd love to tell you a story...
