A Bit About E. C. Colton

She specializes in emotional fiction and beautiful prose with a spoonful of adventure and gritty reality. In her spare time, you’ll find her chilling with her adorable cats, critically composing a mental book review, or watching the world through eyes of wonder, despite having never lived in the country. She loves the color grey, beautiful prose, autumn, stars, sunlight, sweaters, illustrated book covers, and leather boots.
