J.M. Eller started writing at the tender age of five. The child of two minister-writers, it was only natural some of their awesome talent would be passed down. J.M.'s mother, Dr. Bonnie Eller, is author of the cherished children's book, Lots, and lots, of Little Lambpies, with her second book, Little Mocky, the Baby Bird, due out early 2008. The writing continues with J.M.'s daughters, who are trying their own wings as authors, with their upcoming first novel, The World of Dontria. J.M. resides in South Carolina with daughters Aly and Haley as well as Caleb, the service dog, and is currently working on the second book of the Guardian Trilogy.
