About this author

Em Bailey is an Australian living in Germany where, despite having been a vegetarian for many years, she now enjoys the occasional Wurst. Em used to be a new-media designer for a children’s television production house and is now a full-time author. Shift is her first YA novel, although she has written a number of books for children under the name Meredith Badger.

When she’s not writing, Em is generally getting lost, losing stuff, reading, hanging out with her friends and family, and listening to Radiolab podcasts. Like Olive, she doesn’t like leggings that look like jeans, but has no problem with tofu schnitzels.

Shift by Em Bailey
"Probably one of the best things I enjoyed about Shift was the supernatural/natural aspect of it. Was Miranda actually a shapeshifter (the proper term really should be energy vampire, or something, rather than shapeshifter) or was it Olive’s meds?..." Read more of this review »

"So, I was absolutely amazed by this creepy novel, and NONE of my Goodreads friends have read this?!



It's not even newly published novel (2011!)

“... it looked at me as it passed, smiling in that crazy-happy way that dogs do. And I started laughing. I mean, how can you not laugh at a dog running on the beach? But I was also kind of crying, too. Laughing and crying simultaneously hurts. It hurts and it's confusing.”
Em Bailey, Shift
