... lives in North Cornwall with her husband, children and pets...
Always easily inspired, Emily has a lot of stories that need to be brought out from rough drafts to be edited, illustrated and published as books. Some are for young children, but there will be many that span age ranges from four all the way up to adult... So, stay in touch as there will be something for everyone within the next 5 years.
Emily used to teach Drama, Dance, G.P. Exercise Referral Classes and Yoga (including YogaBugs for children under 8 years old), holds a DBS certificate and is a great workshop leader- full of mischief and adventure. Please visit her LinkedIn profile for more information:
Because she has disabilities (hEDS, JHS, PoTS 3, CFS, MCAS & more), Emily wants to create characters in her books that help what is currently viewed as 'diversity' to become normality. In "Big Dog, Little Dog or Someone In-Between" we see a boy using sticks to walk in a mixed race family that is the combination of two families- one whose father abandoned them and one whose mother died. It is time to share stories that enable our children to see people like them having messy, human lives that don't necessarily go to plan, no matter how much we would like them to. Despite that, our children will see that they can still share fun, love and care. If we want our children to become resilient, we need to show them that it's OK if things go wrong- we learn and move on.
Emily is also a fine artist. See her uploaded portfolio on Adobe portfolios:
Emily also writes poetry and puts the poems onto poetry soup. So if you want to read something different, please visit:

As soon as we can, there will be events in Cornwall, at first in:
Bricknells Toys (upstairs at Bricknells Stationers, Molesworth Street, Wadebridge)- Super Saturday Story Times- it's a small venue so the event will be ticketed. (Parents / carers must remain with children).
Wadebridge Library ABC Adventures, Stories brought to life & so much more once we are allowed groups activities again.
If you would like an event at your school, pre-school or festival please contact Emily via the welcome page.
