Welcome to my world. I’m J. Ember Hintz. I write paranormal romantic suspense with speculative and supernatural elements, featuring plucky heroines who defy the powers that be to seize control of their own destinies. You’ll meet murderous disembodied spirits, psychic cyborgs, unruly aliens, and apathetic ancient gods in my stories, but never a damsel in distress.

My debut novel, THE ASH GARDENERS, is a 2021 Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense finalist, and 2022 Book Life Prize Quarter Finalist. Books two and three in the Almegaverse Series arrive in 2023.

I live near the ocean with my husband, two rescue poodles, and the occasional ghost. My alter ego enjoys a successful career in the wedding industry. Job perks include an unlimited supply of cake, champagne and IRL HEAs. When I’m not breathing life into fictional characters or making dreams come true, you can find me in the studio throwing paint at a canvas and hoping for the best.
