Rochelle Carter SPHR, President/ CEO

An avid reader from the fifth grade, Ms. Carter has always had a passion for books and secretly dreamed of a job where all she had to do was read books all day. In 2009, after seeing a continuous lack of quality Christian fiction material and faced with a growing desire for change, she decided to follow her childhood dreams and start this company.

Her 9+ years of experience in Human Resources and Project Management have prepared her to take the helm of this innovative publishing company and lead it to greatness. With the help of committed co-owners, staff and talented authors, EPH provides much needed support for Christian writers and material for readers of Christian publications.
