Born in Northern Ontario on Robinson Superior Treaty land, E. M. Williams has written all her life. Chaos Calling is her first published novel.
She earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of Waterloo and a Master of Arts in Literary Theory from the University of Guelph. She also completed a course in writing speculative fiction through the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies, and is a former member of the Science Fiction Research Association.
In 2012, she gave a TedxTalk on women, superheroes and power. Originally intended to make her past scholarship work more accessible to a wider audience, it inadvertently supercharged her writing.
E. M. Williams currently lives with her family in Toronto, where she works in the technology sector.
