J.T. Ellison

J.T. Ellison is the bestselling author of eight critically acclaimed novels and multiple short stories. She has been published in over twenty countries. Her novel The Cold Room won the ITW Thriller Award for Best Paperback Original of 2010, and Where All The Dead Lie was a RITA® Award nominee for Best Romantic Suspense in 2012.

Ellison's Dr. Samantha Owens Series includes A Deeper Darkness and the recently released Edge of Black.

Recently I asked her what she was reading. Ellison's reply:
One of the joys of being a writer is the fact that reading is part of the job description. Right now, on the recommendation of two writer buddies, Laura Benedict and Jeff Abbott, I am reading Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking. It’s fascinating; a very frank look at how the world perceives introverts. As an introvert who is often mistaken for an extrovert, it’s heartening to see that what I’ve always worried was anti-social behavior is just my way of recharging the batteries. It also strikes me that without introverts nothing would be invented or created, and without extroverts, nothing would get done.

I’ve also just reread the 7th Harry Potter. It’s always nice to remind oneself that good triumphs over evil, and love is the answer.
