Ellen Edwards Kennedy (aka EEK) grew up in Miss Prentice’s region of far northern New York State and lived with her husband and children across the South and West. This has given her a deep love for these areas and a sharp ear for regional accents. Through high school and college, she performed in summer stock, briefly nursing the vain dream of becoming a Broadway musical star, but eventually made a career as an award-winning TV/radio advertising copywriter. Her experiences as a high school substitute teacher make her uniquely qualified to translate obscure adolescent dialects into understandable English.
Along with the Miss Prentice Mysteries, she is the author of a Christian romance novella, "The Applesauce War," in the upcoming anthology, THE FARMER'S BRIDE, from Barbour Books; and ANOTHER THINK COMING, a mystery set in Texas.
Book Two in the Miss Prentice series, DEATH DANGLES A PARTICIPLE, follows the further adventures of Amelia, Gil, Vern and Lily in the wintry North Country and is scheduled to be published in 2013, and book three, MURDER IN THE PAST TENSE that introduces us to Amelia and friends as teenagers, is currently in production. Ellen writes weekly articles at The Wordsmith Journal Magazine. Articles on writing and the Christian life alternate, week to week.

Ellen is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers, Christian Author's Network, Light of Carolina Writers, Sisters in Crime and MurderMustAdvertise.
She and her husband live in North Carolina, are born-again Christians, and the happy, blessed grandparents of five little answers to prayer.
