Emily was born in the North-West of England and, as a child, loved to scribble down stories and poems. She graduated with a degree in Psychology at Loughborough University and went on to train as an Early Years teacher at Aberystwyth University. Emily has a keen interest in children’s development and promoting emotional wellbeing. After working with young children for many years, she discovered a love of children’s books and began writing her own. Her debut picture book, Every Bunny is a Yoga Bunny, will be published by Nosy Crow in 2022, with another text to follow from Andersen Press in 2023.
When she isn’t writing, Emily can be found tinkling on the piano or at her local primary school, where she helps with reading. She is a graduate of the Golden Egg Academy and now lives in the Garden of England, Kent, with her husband and daughter.
