“I am a writer, an author, someone who loves to put pen or pencil to paper (or fingers to keyboard) and make words that turn into sentences that turn into stories.”
E. G. Gaddess is the pen name of a young adult author who lives in Norfolk, Virginia, with her husband, daughter, two big dogs, and the cat that rules them all. “E. G. Gaddess” was chosen in memory of her grandparents (her grandmother’s maiden name and “Edwina Georgina”, because she looked so much like her grandfather when she was born.) She is forever grateful to her mother for choosing something different.
Born in the U.S. but raised in Canada, she spent six years in the United States Navy, where she met her husband, got married, and had a child. She didn’t see much of the world (just Orlando, FL, Great Lakes, IL, and Norfolk, VA), but she did get a B.A in English (because she always loved to write) and a job as an editor. She learned she really doesn’t like electronic devices, and only likes her computer because it allows her to write and publish.
She always loved to write and took classes in creative writing whenever she could. She still does. There is always something new to learn, another skill to master.
One day, she would love to live off the money she makes from her writing.
