About this author

Emma Jackson grew up in London and, after trying out a few different counties for size, has settled in a lovely little town called Seaford on the south coast of England. She lives with her partner of eleven years, their beautiful baby girl and the cat who adopted them a week after they moved in.

She writes fiction in no particular genre, it just depends which story has taken her interest, though admits to having a soft spot for romance. Made Up is her debut novel, which she self-published on her twenty-eighth birthday as a present to herself.


I'm aware that the title of this post makes me sound like a Big Brother contestant so I'm going to have to explain why.

Currently, I have a short story up on the Mills and Boon website as part of their Hotel Scandal competition and it's open to the public vote between this Friday and Sunday. I want to win, without a doubt, so please do read my story, The Heart of Angelou and cast a vote my way o... Read more of this blog post »

I found this really original and heartfelt and funny in a bitter-sweet kind of way. The ending was abrupt but made me think, which is pretty much everything I like to find in a short story. I really enjoyed it.

It took me a little while to get into this because it's been quite a long time since I read the preceding book in the series and the alternating POV's made it a bit harder for me to connect with the characters again, especially when new ones were int ...more

“Someone tall and tanned was standing just inside the doorway: Owen Walker had arrived. Obviously, she had known this was going to happen – he was one of the people she was setting up for – but she hadn’t anticipated him getting there so soon, while she was on her own, cheeks bulging like a hamster, stuffed with food.”
Emma Jackson

“Sally: 'We’re in India: think spirituality, positive energy -’
Katia: ‘Peace?’
Sally: ‘And love.’
Katia: ‘Karma.’
Sally: ‘Tantra! Actually, maybe not that. Sounds a bit tiring and we do have work to do.”
Emma Jackson

“Oh, it’s you,' her head lolled back as she stared up at Owen. Blood was draining in the wrong direction again. He stooped down lower and lifted her right arm over his head.
'Wow. You're really hot.' He commented when her forearm rested against the back of his neck. You're one to talk; she thought and giggled to herself.”

Char Hi Emma,

It's fine. I can get that. It's why I have 2 email accounts. Yea I put the main part of the review on here and still link to the blog.

It's nice to be back reading and reviewing. :)

Jeshu Eight weeks... wow.... time flies! My little girl is 4 years old now. I still can't believe how big she is. Sometimes I think about her and I still see her as a little thing in my arms.

Thank you for the compliments for my blog XD And you're very welcome, I'm glad to help you out with your career ^^

Hey Jeshu, me and Lily are very good. She's eight weeks old now - can't believe how quickly the time is passing! How old is your little girl?

Thank you for the review on your blog - as you say promotion in the hispanic world is definitely a good thing. I can't understand a word of it but it sounds brilliant (and your blog is gorgeous)! XD

Jeshu Emma!! How are you and the baby?? I hope both of you are doing great :D

it's in spanish, though... but a little bit of promotion in the hispanic world is a good thing. You never know when somebody might be interested in it enough to translate it!

Clark Zlotchew Hi Emma, I've read your short story, "Percussion," and liked it. You wrote it for a competition with the prompt "Ego", and it does fill that bill. This story takes place in an atmosphere that is definitely alien to me because of the generational gap. I've never been to a dance club or to a rock concert, and I've never smoked those funny cigarettes (or any cigarettes for that matter). In spite of this fact, I found the story a fascinating look at the psyche of a girl with a very large ego, perhaps deservedly. The milieu is one that is not only alien to me, but completely off-putting, yet I enjoyed reading your description of it. You made it very real, while at the same time delving into the protagonist's mind. It was interesting, too, that you wrote the story from the 2nd person point of view, a perspective which is relatively rare in fiction. Great job! There are a couple of small suggestions that I would make, if you are willing to let me. Let me know if you want this feedback. Best wishes, CZ


Chris Hi Emma...thanks for the add.

Moorcock is something of an aquired taste, especially his older stuff from the 70s or so. I have to have all these shelves for him to keep up with what I have, since I've been collecting his omnibus editions for awhile now.


Lisette Brodey Thanks so much, Emma. That really means a lot to me. Hope you'll keep in touch.

All best wishes,
Lisette
