Emerian Rich was born in Colorado Springs, Colorado in 1973, the only child of pastors. She lived in thirty-two different places by the time she graduated high school. With no siblings and no consistent peer relationships, the pen became an integral part of her life, granting her an inexpensive pastime that she could take with her anywhere. The characters in her stories became her friends and her journal, her only continuous confidant.

Emerian graduated The Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in San Francisco, California in 1993 with an A.A. in Visual Presentation and Space Design. She has been a consultant on window design, store merchandising, web design projects, company logos, and newsletter production.

Emerian began her non-profit ‘zine, Dark Lives, in 1997. Her goal was to give unpublished talent in the horror genre a place to have their work published and enjoyed. Originally began as a paper publication, Dark Lives became exclusively a web ‘zine in 2002. darklives.com offically closed it’s doors at the end of 2007.

Emerian has been a part of many social and business groups including: The Katz (Supernatural Investigators), Pagans at the Workplace (Diversity Events), Bring Your Child To Work Day Organizers, The Burning Times Awareness Group, Netkatz (Webmasters), among others. She is also an active volunteer for the following causes: Clean The Beach Days, Earth Day, Oil Clean Up Education, Service to Elders, Children’s Day Camp, Community Support for Abused Children, and Activities for the Developmentally Disabled. Currently, she is a proud member of the Quills Literary Group and The MH Tea Society.

She has also written under the names: Emerian Mordrige, E. Mordrige, Emmy Z. Madrigal and Emz.

Emerian lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and son. She is seeking publication of her Current Projects.
