Hiya, I'm El Edwards, author and mentor from South Wales in the UK.

Irrepressible silver-lining-spotter. Coffee addict. Fun-loving Jesus geek. Doctor Who nerd. Ethical vegan. Lover of smiles.


As well as writing books, I'm the founder of the Faith And Happiness Playground where I equip and inspire Christian entrepreneurs to make Jesus CEO of their life and business, simply by being Youier.


When I'm not writing myself into a corner, you'll find me shamelessly watching Doctor Who while enjoying a flat white (or three!) made with freshly roasted beans, taking my two dogs for a walk in the rain (there's a reason why the grass is always so green in Wales!) or playing unpaid taxi driver for one of my three children. (Yes it's a cliche that I desperately wish wasn't true!)

I want to live in a world where silver-lining spotting is taught to all ten year olds, growing up is outlawed and laughter is the magic pill that cures all.


As well as the Charlie Diamond mystery series, I've also written romantic comedy, Chapter 35, inspirational novel The Itchy Soul and a non-fiction book for Christians, Youier Goal Setting.

My first full-length non-fiction book, Weird, is set for publication in 2020 and is perfect for anyone who's ready to become more of the person God made them to be. To follow along with the pre-publication fun, hop on the 'Notes From Behind The Mic' list and get free access to some of my fiction:
