About Me

I'm in my thirties and living in New Zealand.  A little over a year ago I lost somebody very close to me.  I was lucky in a way, I was given enough time to make a promise.  My promise was that I would never forget our young and innocent love, and it's a promise I intend to keep.

My writing is a way to help me keep that promise.  I've always enjoyed writing but was forced into being ‘prudent' and giving myself over to soul-crushing office work for the sake of a steady salary.  Recent events forced me to re-evaluate my priorities and I decided to take a chance.  I like to put little pieces of ‘us' into my writing, from funny conversations we had, to apocalyptic arguments, to that special feeling you get when you hop into bed fully aware that your feet are freezing but your partner doesn't kick you away.

Even though these things are set in fictional worlds and attached to fictional characters, in a way it feels like I'm doing something that will make our love live forever.  If somebody reads one of my stories and likes a joke or sheds a tear, then our love has lived on, and I thank any readers I might have for that.

    Dear Emma,
    I just finished reading your riveting novel, Coming Back and thoroughly enjoyed it. Your description of Christi’s escape and struggle through the. forest drug me out of my seat and right out into the forest with her. Chilling.
    I am looking forward to spending another quiet evening lost in your beautifully written books.

    Hello Emma
    I finished reading What Love Is last night and I am devastated. I fell in love with Beatrice, Jeremy, Harper, Nick, Christie and Dean. They became so real that I don’t want to let them go. I did laugh and cry my way through (totally love your sense of humor). Thank you and I look forward to reading more in the future.
