Emily Larkin is the USA Today bestselling author of the Baleful Godmother historical romance series, a series that readers are calling “sexy, unusual and vastly entertaining,” and "ridiculously wonderful."

When not reading or writing, Emily can be found hiking—preferably somewhere off the beaten track. She loves to travel, and has lived in Sweden, backpacked in Europe and North America, and traveled overland in the Middle East, China, and North Africa. Her varied career includes stints as a field assistant in Antarctica and a waitress on the Isle of Skye.

Emily writes fantasy novels as Emily Gee, and historical romance novels as Emily Larkin. She has been a finalist in the Romance Writers of America RITA award, as well as the National Readers

You know, I’ve never thought about it before. I think … I like a mixture of both. Usually I write about people who don’t know each other falling in love, but sometimes I want to write about characters with a shared history. I really enjoyed writing My Lady Thief. It was fun to tip all Adam and Arabella’s prejudices upside down and watch them learn to see each other through new eyes.(less)

I'm starting a new Baleful Godmother series set in Regency England featuring a family of aristocratic cousins (the Garlands), plus there's another set of cousins who'll get their own series. The first books should be out in 2018.
I'm so glad you're enjoying the series. I can't believe you read them all in a week! (less)

A few years ago I wrote a Regency romance called The Spinster’s Secret that had a pair of secondary characters who fell in love: an impoverished widow (Cecy) and a baronet (Gareth) who’d lost an arm at Waterloo.
