E. Denise Billups was born in Monroeville, Alabama, and raised in New York City, where she currently resides. Before becoming a full-time author, she worked as a Financial Adviser and Portfolio Analyst in the Investment Banking Industry and received an MBA in finance.
A multi-genre author of fiction, she’s published four novels: Keepers of the Gate: Twilight Ends (Book 1), Kalorama Road, Chasing Victoria, and By Chance. In 2021, she released the first book in the Simone Doucet Series novella series, Tainted Harvest. She has also written several supernatural short stories, including Off the Grid, Ravine Lereux: Unearthing A Family Curse, The Playground, and Rebound. A skilled artist, she trained as a dancer (ballet, modern, and jazz dance) in her younger years and dabbled in writing, which she would not pursue until much later. As an avid reader of many genres, authors who wrote magical realism, mystery, suspense, and supernatural novels greatly influenced her.
When she’s not reading or writing, she’s running miles in the park, finding her inner calm with yoga, experimenting with vegan dishes, or enjoying time with family and friends.
Presently, she is working on book two of her trilogy, Twilight Ends, a paranormal historical fiction, and book two of Simone Doucet Series.
