Emily is a 34 year old mom of two autistic girls looking for redemption and validation of her dreams. She is currently pursuing Bachelors of Fine Arts in Professional and Creative Writing at Central Washington University. She’s a member of the International Women’s Writers Guild, The Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, and 6 time NaNoWriMo participant. She is not represented by an agency currently, but is querying two unpublished manuscripts: Newfangled (YA Contemporary,) and Residuum (YA Science Fiction.) 

When she isn’t writing, you’ll find Emily doing her best as a full-time special needs mom to her two autistic daughters, following her ambitious Airman around the world, playing God by means of The Sims or Animal Crossing, living out her design fantasies vicariously through HGTV, or being crushed by her never-ending to-be-read list. Some of her favorite books are: The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern, Well Met by Jen DeLuca, The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde, Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen, and The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune.
