Hi, I'm Emma. I have always absolutely loved reading and remember reading The Worst Witch, Judy Blume and Point Horror when I was younger. I have dabbled in writing for 6 years but only recently decided to dip my toe into the self publishing world after months of deliberation. My writing started as a hobby whilst on maternity leave but over the last 12 months has become my passion. I love all things vampire so naturally my first book is based on this theme. My first book The Awakening is out now and will be followed soon my a short story called Origins which focuses on Drake and Emily.
What made you want to become a author?
I've always loved writing, reading & books. I started dabbling with writing over 7 years ago whilst on maternity leave with my daughter & now find I miss it if I don't write for a couple of months.
What do you love most about writing?
The creativity without a doubt.
What is your least favourite thing about writing?
Editing. I find it very time consuming & it can feel like one foot forward two back.
Who inspires you?
My children mostly although I realise that sounds clique.
Can you tell us something about your book?
It is a YA paranormal romance with a modern feel & hopefully unexpected twist.
Who are some of your favourite authors?
Authors I admire include Marian Keyes, Emily Barr & Lisa Jewell. I also love physiological thrillers and recently have enjoyed M J Arlidge Eeny Meeny.
Any tips or suggestions for people who want to become an author?
I'm a newbie myself so have little advice except to write often & about the genre you love.
