Emma was born and raised in Manchester, England.

Blackbrooke is her debut young adult horror novel after spending many years honing her skills drafting short stories and devouring horror through the ages from R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps collection through to Stephen King.

Blackbrooke is the Part I of the Blackbrooke Trilogy.

Emma is also the author of a semi-biographical account of her dad’s years in a rock band in the 1970s, Driving Exile.

She gets most of her ideas and is inspired by music and also the fighting spirit of young people who aren’t afraid to challenge the norm and stand up for what they believe in. This fleeting ‘moment’ in life is what she tries to capture in her writing.

I sometimes wonder whether I'll ever do a job that I'm actually extremely good at. I know everyone shares the same sense of being an imposter in their job, as though they're just waiting to be found out and outed as a fraud. All very natural, I've heard. However, seeing as I'm yet to work somewhere where I can go home at the end of the day and feel like I've done something right (let alone good... Read more of this blog post »

 Mike Working title: Feast or Famine
Forward by Bowie Ibarra
Deadline for submissions August 1, 2013
http://zombiefans.com/

Anthology Theme: There are individuals known as survivalists, or now known by the recently coined term: preppers. These people are making preparations to ensure their safety and continued existence in the occurrence of a catastrophic disaster or event. But what happens when the SHTF? Really? You will have a population of have and have nots. Those who were ready and prepared and those who are caught unaware and panicked. The struggle for available resources will be another catastrophic event in and of itself as humans fight to either defend and retain what they have established or to take what others had the foresight to store and prepare.

This is the end as we know it. For some, life and death hinges on acquiring basic human needs, while for others life is good, if not better in accordance with their due diligence.
The Zombie Apocalypse has arrived. Will it be feast or famine?

Paranormal romance...umm, my favorite are the two series by Jennifer L. Armentrout (Covenant and Lux) as are the two series by Cassandra Clare (Clockwork Prince and the other one...I forgot the name)
If you've read those, you can try vampires in Blood of Eden ( immortal rules series). I'm not the BIGGEST fan of Vampire Academy series, but there are lots of people who consider it the next harry potter...you might want to try it. As for horror, can't think of any off the top of my mind, but I'll think about it and tell you. So, have you read any of the ones I mentioned? I actually borrowed all of those from my local library, so you shouldn't have trouble finding them.

I like allsorts. I have to say I'm just getting into YA again after many years reading crime and adult horror books and have been overwhelmed by the amount of paranormal romance there is. So much that I'm not sure what's good and what's not. If you can recommend any good ones that would be great. Like a bit of horror too :-)
