Well hi there. I’m Emily. I’m a born-and-raised Hoosier, but beyond that I don’t care too much about Indiana (though I do miss its rolling cornfields and its humid summers). I have a mild obsession with everything J. Crew and I tend to use too many parentheses and em-dashes. En-dashes? Not sure which is which. Which is bad, because I was a graphic design major in college…
Anyhoo. I recently graduated with an MFA from VCFA’s Writing for Children and Young Adults low-residency program (sorry, that’s a mouthful) and no it’s not online. I went out to Vermont twice a year, and I am beyond crushed that I’m done with it.
What else? I grew up with asthma, my first memory is in a hospital isolation tent thing, trying to find a puzzle piece I lost. I’m married, but beyond that you won’t hear much about my husband on here. (Other than the fact that he’s fantastic.) I have a weakness for cheese, and chocolate, and crappy sweets, and now this is starting to sound like a dating profile, so I’ll leave off here. If I ever get anything published, maybe I’ll add some more inspirational writerly stuff.
P.S. I’m the angry-looking one in the front of the duck there. What can I say? I’ve had an RBF since the day I was born. My dear sweet sister is in the back. She’s got a Resting Happy Face, if that’s a thing. She’s the greatest.
