Stephanie M. Freeman

‘A good writer remembers the path to Publication. An Author shows others the way.’

-Stephanie Freeman QUill’s Edge

 Stephanie M. Freeman is a preeminent author whose professional writing career began in 2012 when her first Thriller, Necessary Evil, followed by Unfinished Business and Nature of the Beast were released. Since then, she has explored different genres and amassed a loyal group of fans who eagerly await her latest releases. She continues to push literary boundaries and also writes lighter themes under Aracyne Kelly and more sensual pleasures under Red Widow.  

When she isn’t prattling on about coffee and serial killers, Stephanie is traveling the country as a Professional Technological Trainer. She can be found working on one of her seemingly endless crochet projects with soft strains of smooth Jazz, classical music, or hard rock playing in the background.

Stephanie is surrounded by an eclectic group of friends and family she affectionately calls “The Usual Suspects”. Although she spent her formative years in Maryland, she is a proud Pennsylvanian. She shares her book lair with her horribly spoiled cat, Egypt.

Necessary Evil Five Star Review

Stephanie Freeman’s novel, Necessary Evil, kept me on the edge of my seat. What a compelling, gritty, and suspenseful read! The pace is fast, yet the author has the unique ability to slow things down for a long moment, creating deep and perfect studies of her characters.

Unfinished Business 5 Star Review

Stephanie Freeman’s intense and emotional writing style will keep readers turning the pages in her newest suspense novel, Unfinished Business. This novel brings readers the next chapter in the lives of Cassiel Garrett, formerly of the FBI and Alana Symone, former cat burglar, featured in Ms. Freeman’s earlier novel, Necessary Evil.

Five Star Review for A Letter From Yesay

Romantic Suspense at its best! I don’t think there is a romantic suspense fan alive who would be able to read the prologue to “A Letter from Yesay” without wanting to immediately devour the rest of the book. That’s what I did. Author Stephanie Freeman has nailed both the “romance” half and the “suspense” half of her genre with this compelling story of a young woman whose life has gone off the rails and the devoted friend and long-estranged brother who meet trying to sort out exactly what happened to her.
