Emilie Richards, the author of more than sixty novels, began writing in 1983 after the birth of her fourth child and a move to New Orleans, Louisiana. Four children, another strange city--New Orleans, God bless it, is stranger than most--and a blossoming need to do something "just for herself" convinced her to begin. Contemporary romance novels and, more recently, family dramas were logical choices because with a Master's degree in Family Counseling and experience as a counselor, she thought she might have something to say about relationships. A long and happy marriage to her minister husband Michael didn't hurt, either and has resulted in a mystery series for Berkley Prime Crime, the Ministry is Murder mysteries, featuring minister's wife Aggie Sloan-Wilcox, as the amateur sleuth.

Emilie has received a number of awards during her career, including the RITA from Romance Writers of America and several from Romantic Times magazine, including a career achievement award. She has been interviewed on both television and radio and quoted in Reader's Digest, right between Oprah and Thomas Jefferson.

Besides Virginia and Louisiana, Emilie and family have lived in Florida, California, Arkansas, Ohio and Pennsylvania. A four month family sabbatical in Australia turned into six books for Silhouette with Australian or New Zealand settings. Recently two of those novels were made into television movies in Germany. Ten years later she returned for three months with Michael and Brendan to research Beautiful Lies, her third book for MIRA.

Emilie currently lives in Northern Virginia with Michael. Despite the family's frequent moves Emilie is delighted that her four children (along with their spouses and a granddaughter) are still within reach, and not in Australia as they so often threatened.

In addition to traveling, Emilie is an enthusiastic gardener who has turned her suburban yard into an English cottage garden and a quilter who can't quite sew a straight seam. She writes with the world's craziest beagle at her feet. Oddly enough dogs seem to show up in many of her books.
