Goodreads Author




Member Since
July 2011


Emma grew up in England, Indonesia, Kuwait, Portugal and Fiji, and from a young age she had two ambitions: to write stories, and to look after animals. She studied veterinary medicine and zoology at the University of Cambridge, then worked as a small animal veterinary surgeon for eighteen years before starting to write fiction. Emma lives near Cambridge in England with her husband and three sons, and her rescue dog and cat.

The Au Pair was her first novel, published in eleven countries in ten languages. The Perfect Guests is her second novel, out in January 2021.

Publication Day for The Perfect Guests

I’m so thrilled that The Perfect Guests is now out in the world. It’s set very close to where I live, in the flat, marshy Fens in the east of England, and I had a lot of fun writing it. I really hope you enjoy it!
