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.

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…

In Darkling Wood by Emma Carroll
Frost Hollow Hall by Emma Carroll
"Victorian, atmospheric, spooky. Perfect

Compelling characters and a fascinating look into the lives of different classes in Victorian England. And ghosts... I loved it!"
Frost Hollow Hall by Emma Carroll
"This is an absolutely beautiful book. You wouldn't think so, seeing as it features a drowned child's angel as a main character, but it really shows that the supernatural doesn't necessarily have to be "scary" in every book. Emma Carroll dives much..." 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

“Leave it. It's finished," he said. There were bad people he'd have liked to cut a strip off too. But it didn't make things better; it just made you feel a different sort of awful.”
Emma Carroll, Strange Star

a heart-beat

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
