My books are for sale individually at the links below, but for by far the best deal I suggest checking out my Patreon.


Hello! My name is E. M. Epps (please call me Emma). I write fantasy and science fiction that is 100% guaranteed not to contain vampires, werewolves, were-anythings, dwarves, evil stepmothers, teenage love triangles, Chosen Ones, epic battles between Good and Evil, or multi-book story arcs for which you will have to wait years to find out the ending. Those can all be wonderful (well, except for the unfinished series thing); they're just not what I do.

So what's left, you ask? Spaceships and sorcerers! Though not at the same time....

So far.

The Deniability of Danishes: A Romance Novella

Cold Sandwiches and All: A Romantic Comedy

The Interpreter’s Tale: A Word With Too Many Meanings

As a linguist and military interpreter, Eliadmaru Faraa has always been a supporting character in other people’s stories. And so far, that’s been just fine with him: it’s words he loves, not swordplay or affairs […]

What Readers are Saying

…[W]hat really makes this story stand out is the quality of the writing. Epps has a clear, lyrical style that presents simple scenes with deep power. More importantly, she does an excellent job at drawing, clear, flawed, but sympathetic characters.

about "You Made My Heart a Hunter"

The humor had me laugh out loud at times and the emotions made me tear up at others, which I love in a book.

about "The Interpreter's Tale"

A friend gave me this book, and it languished for weeks on the ‘to be read’ pile. Don’t do that. Read it as soon as you can, clear an afternoon so that you can wallow in that most unusual of readers joys, a story that gently and steadily reels you in. You start out floating in a light wash of someones fantastical daily life, and are gently subsumed by a world of cultures and relationships. Then the story ends, but you want more….

about "The Interpreter's Tale"

I LOVED it. It was a captivating tale. The book could almost have been a resource shedding light on being an interpreter, but throw in sorcerers, magicians, heartbreak, and a royal court and you’ve got the makings of an epic adventure. The book was excellently written from the aspects of fantasy portrayed as real as if it all happened in our own history to the language jargon and occupational terminology (which I thoroughly enjoyed). It was clearly well-researched and the author masterfully wove in fact and fiction to bring a non-stop read. The action was brilliant, the sex tasteful, and the pace well done.

about "The Interpreter's Tale"

This is a book I will read again. Some morning, when perhaps it is dark, or I just want to feel a bit of magic in my life, I will pick this little book up and read it again. Any author who can create a new world and cause me to want to live and breathe within it, is worthy of my admiration and time. E.M. Epps has done this for me in this wonderful book.

Tracy Haroldsen, Amazon reviewer

about "You Made My Heart a Hunter"

When I finished the novel I closed the book, sat in silence a moment, turned it back over to look at the front cover, and said “Holy s#$%” in admiration of the author’s work. It breaks genre rules with finesse. It gets you into an unfamiliar but believable world impressively quickly. This is a delightful book.
