Emily was born in London to a Welsh mother and Spanish father, but spent her teenage years in Barcelona. Her debut book 'Shop Girl Diaries' began as a blog about working in her Mum's eccentric chandelier shop. It won the CompletelyNovel Author Blog Awards at the London Book Fair in 2010 and inspired her script for Shop Girl Blog, a comedy taster starring Katy Wix. Emily has contributed articles on Blogging and Social Media to guidebooks and magazines including Survival Guide to Journalism, Publishing Talk, The New Writer and Mslexia and runs Blogging for Beginners and Improvers workshops. Her new book is a romantic comedy called 'Spray Painted Bananas'. She is represented by Laura Longrigg at MBA.
