Emma is the author of highly acclaimed book club fiction novels and is known for mixing humour with darker emotional themes. Her debut, The Songs of Us, was snapped up in multiple pre-empts and auctions and was short-listed for the RNA contemporary novel of the year award.
Her work has since been translated into seven different languages.
Writing came to Emma later in life. As a mother of four, she had little spare time and wrote her debut during her lunch hour while working full-time. She went on to run her own successful manuscript appraisal service, where she has worked with traditionally published authors, as well as new aspiring writers. Emma is a passionate advocate for working-class writers and loves to help others on their road to publication.
She has had four books published so far: The Songs of Us, The First Time I Saw You, If I Could Say Goodbye and It Was Always You.
Emma is currently working on her fifth novel, as well as working as a creative writing tutor and mentor.
Emma loves working with writers of contemporary fiction, literary, book club, women’s fiction, romance, fantasy and YA.
