Emma Meade writes paranormal fiction.
She lives in rainy Ireland and loves all things supernatural. Stephen King's The Stand is one of her most loved books and she's lost count of the number of times she's read L.J. Smith's trilogy, The Forbidden Game.

Books, DVDS & TV show boxsets take up lots of space in her home and she collects all the Point Horror books she can get her hands on.

She is not ashamed to admit that Dirty Dancing and Twilight make her top ten movie list but wishes to point out that The Last of the Mohicans, Reality Bites, Dead Poets Society, Stand by Me and The Goonies are in there too.

Writing supernatural stories & watching marathon re-runs of Buffy are some of her favourite ways of escaping reality.

"This doorstop of a book was such a slog. I can't tell if I'm too old for this kind of drama, or if this kind of drama has just been done too much in general and by CC specifically so I'm dead to it now."
Queen of Air and Darkness by Cassandra Clare
"Unpopular Opinion: Please stop. This series, or I should say the series of series set in this universe, has gone on for way too long. The concept has gotten stale and too many of the plot threads feel dully similar to what we've seen in previous Shad" Read more of this review »
