E.L. Drayton was born and raised in the Bronx. As the daughter of a former high school English Teacher, her single mother taught her how to read and write before she even started school. She quickly picked up reading and understood books well beyond her age so her passion for writing came as no surprise.
She went on to college and studied Psychology instead of taking the expected route of Literature or Creative Writing. Not taking any formal writing courses, however, never deterred her from her goal. In fact, it made her want it more. She spent countless years building a library of books from all sorts of genres to learn from those she considered to be the best. All throughout her years of writing she never lost her thirst for knowledge as she read others’ works of fiction.
Deciding to become an Independent Author was something she’d always wanted.
She’s working on her own universe, ShadowRealm, with many books planned. Also, an Illustrated Novel Series called Twin Crossing.
She currently resides in Los Angeles with her girlfriend and their puppy.
