Emma Clayton

Goodreads Author

The United Kingdom

Member Since
April 2013

Emma Clayton spent her teens playing in indie bands and doodling with comic artists. In her twenties she studied screen writing and became an author. The Roar and The Whisper were inspired by her love of film, particularly those of Steven Spielberg she watched as a child.

In 2013, Emma took a road trip through the western states of America, and is working on a children's novel inspired by that journey. In her spare time she enjoys hiking up England’s mistier mountains, driving her leaky Land Rover and eating Reese's peanut butter cups.

Emma Clayton hasn't written any blog posts yet.

“Helen's books were her friends, "the kind you invite for dinner in the middle of winter," she'd told him, " and spend all night talking and never go to bed.”

“For their planet was soaked in human tears as volatile as gasoline, and if the match struck, it would burn bright, but just for a few moments, before it crumbled to dust.”
Emma Clayton, The Whisper

“And I think it's dangerous to forget we are controlled by instincts...It makes us do things without understanding why. It makes us destructive, angry, and cruel.”
Emma Clayton, The Whisper
