After years of teaching English to secondary school students, Emma now writes full time. She graduated with distinction from Bath Spa University’s MA in Writing For Young People. In another life Emma wishes she’d written ‘Rebecca’ by Daphne Du Maurier. She lives in the Somerset hills with her husband and three terriers.

MY 2016 IN PICTURES

From a bookish, writerly, selfishly personal perspective 2016 has actually been a wonderful year. Yes, there’ve been ups and downs, the doubts, the worries. But isn’t that life? So…

Frost Hollow Hall by Emma Carroll
"“Maybe Kit was Ada’s special angel.”

This book is one of my favourites now.
It is so well written that it will keep you reading until you realise that you are already on the last chapter.
At the beginning you have this ghostly and spirit vibe and th..." Read more of this review »

“But when, a long time later, Felix turned the final page, he knew there was more to this story than names. In it was a mother whose death broke her children's hearts. There were kind fathers, like Lizzie's, and ones like Mary's who were distant and cool. There were people who, time and time again, judged others for how they looked.”
Emma Carroll, Strange Star

“For the book was also about ambition. About wanting to be the biggest, the best, the most famous at any cost. It was about pushing the boundaries of discovery. Most of all, though, it was a warning: without love and kindness, we all become monsters.”
Emma Carroll, Strange Star

“DO YOUR DUTY”

“When someone won't let you in, eventually you stop knocking.”
Ransom Riggs, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

Edith Wharton

“My little old dog
a heart-beat
at my feet”
Edith Wharton

“No sight so sad as that of a naughty child," he began, "especially a naughty little girl. Do you know where the wicked go after death?"

"They go to hell," was my ready and orthodox answer.

"And what is hell? Can you tell me that?"

"A pit full of fire."

"And should you like to fall into that pit, and to be burning there for ever?"

"No, sir."

"What must you do to avoid it?"

I deliberated a moment: my answer, when it did come was objectionable: "I must keep in good health and not die.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
