Emily is an author and illustrator based in Woking, UK. She spends most of her time with a pencil in her hand or glued to her computer fiddling around in Photoshop. Emily is inspired by too many children's authors and illustrators to list here, but her favourites are Jim Field, Catherine Raynor and Sarah Massini. She is an active member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and loves to attend their masterclasses, critique groups and conferences. When she's not working on writing and illustration projects, Emily can either be found sitting in the children's section of the library (using her toddler as an excuse...) or teaching Arts Education to future primary school teachers at the University of Reading.
