Hi! I'm Emily. I'm the author of Owl Flight and The Hidden. When I'm not writing fiction, you can find me designing content for Fables and Fauna, indulging in my bullet journal, or geeking over Harry Potter.
I've been in love with stories all my life.
I began writing professionally in 2010, creating non-fiction, and published my first fiction novel in 2014. Since then, I haven't looked back.
I was born and raised in Southern California, where I still live today. My mother's passion for reading steamed my own, and my love for stories began to grow at a very young age.
Though I love story writing and had several half-finished books hanging out on my desktop by the time I graduated college, it wasn't until 2014 that I was able to complete my first novel (thanks, NaNoWriMo!) and soon after publish.
Influences: My writing is influenced by mythology, American Romanticism, gothicism, and fantasy authors Tolkien, Rowling, and McKinley.
Authors: I also enjoy reading poetry (Tennyson, Keats, Wilde, Dickinson), classic literature (Austen, Joyce, Bronte, Chaucer, Shakespeare), and non-fiction.
Education and Business: I've always loved learning, and with a lifetime spent reading and writing, it was a natural step for me to earn a Bachelor's in English Literature. With a passion for helping and teaching others, I soon after obtained a Masters of Education.
But working for someone else never felt right, and even though I was writing and publishing fiction, in early 2017, I joined Nikki Floreno as the co-owner of Fables and Fauna, a small press publishing company for children's adventure books.
Trivia: INFJ, poet, yoga enthusiast, chocolate lover, artist, Harry Potter obsessed, and productivity crazy.
