Marissa Eller is a novelist and a college writing tutor. She holds a BA in English from the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and an MFA in Writing from Lindenwood University. She resides in Hickory, North Carolina with her family and two rescue cats, all of whom she couldn’t love more if she tried.
An avid reader of YA and a devoted supporter of the #OwnVoices movement, threads of her own life are woven into her fiction. Her writing focuses on the depth of human emotion, and the power words have to change a life.
When not writing or helping students, she can be found thinking entirely too much about her favorite TV shows, obsessing over a band she’s loved since she was fifteen, or enjoying an afternoon nap.
