Emily grew up in a small southern town in the United States. Even as a child, she could always be found writing, investigating strange sounds around the house, and immersing herself in horror films and shows. She credits her love of horror and writing to her father who always fed her interests and her favorite authors: Stephen King, H.P. Lovecraft, and Anne Bishop. As she matured, she wanted to continue her love for the genre in the form of something artistic. She is currently still in the the southern U.S. living with her husband and dog, whom are supporting her on her journey into the ever-mysterious spiral into paranormal fantasy.
