Emerald O’Brien is a Canadian writer who grew up just east of Toronto, Ontario. She studied Television Broadcasting and Communications Media, and graduated from the program at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario.

When Emerald is not reading or writing unpredictable stories packed with suspense, she loves baking, bonfires, binging Netflix shows, and spending time with family.

A horror movie enthusiast, Emerald can be found watching them at the movie theatre with her best friend or while cuddled up on the couch with her two beagles: Tucker and Wynnie.

“The past is never what it seems. Not even our own memories accurately process everything we’ve been through. Time and other experiences warp the facts. Secrets and lies distort whatever truth we thought we knew to begin with, but each experience leaves us with a feeling. Some complex—feelings at odds with each other—but they’re the way we truly remember things.”
Emerald O'Brien, The Girls Across The Bay

“Television Broadcasting and Communications Media program at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario. As the author of unpredictable stories packed with suspense, Emerald enjoys connecting with her readers who are passionate about joining characters as they solve mysteries and take exciting adventures between the pages of great books. When she is not reading or writing, Emerald can be found with family and friends. Watching movies with her husband and their two beagles is one of her favourite”
Emerald O'Brien, The Girls Across The Bay

“He said good people do bad things, and bad people do good things, but what makes a person good isn’t their intentions. It’s their actions.”
