Emma was born and grew up in Newcastle upon Tyne. After graduating from the University of St. Andrews with an MA in English Language and Literature, she embarked on a career as a Technical Author: firstly in Edinburgh and now in London.
Away from her day job, she’s developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of real-life murder cases and of notorious historical figures, as well as a fascination with unorthodox women – past, present and fictional. In her writing, she likes to poke around the darker reaches of the human mind, and to explore what people are capable of under extreme circumstances.
Little Deaths is her first novel. She is currently working on her second novel which, like Little Deaths, is based on a real crime.
