E.K. Reisinger began her writing career as a journalist: for twenty years she served as a magazine editor, freelance writer, and administrator in academia. But her heart has always been in fiction, especially romance and fantasy novels.
As an emerging writer in fiction, Reisinger has recently published short fiction in Two Sisters Writing & Publishing, in the Celtic fantasy anthology Neon Druid (Mt. Misery Press, December 2018), and the literary journal Nitrogen House.
Professionally, Reisinger has held positions at Gannett Newspapers, Thomson Reuters, and, most recently, at the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) at Saint John’s University, a global leader in the cultural preservation of manuscripts. Throughout the years, Reisinger has also contributed freelance editorial work to some of the world’s most recognizable brands. See examples on the Portfolio page.
Among other accolades, Reisinger is a past recipient of a news reporting and writing fellowship at The Poynter Institute in St. Petersburg, Florida. She holds a degree in political science and women’s studies from Luther College in Decorah, Iowa and is a member of the Minnesota Historical Society, the Women’s Fiction Writers Association (WFWA), the Romance Writers of America (RWA) and The Author’s Guild. Reisinger serves on the Board of Directors of the Stearns History Museum; currently chairs the Board of Directors of LEAF, the private educational foundation for District 742/St. Cloud area public schools; and is a licensed substitute K-12 teacher for the state of Minnesota.
When not writing or reading, Reisinger is probably lost in the woods, making a mess in the kitchen, or watching science fiction movies at her home in rural Minnesota.
