Growing up Emily wanted to be a mermaid but she has had to be satisfied with getting her open-water SCUBA license instead! Emily lives in Adelaide, South Australia with her husband and two teenage sons. When she's not writing she will be daydreaming about her next holiday or reading (or both) while avoiding the ironing, the cooking and the cleaning. She still thinks it would be fun to be a mermaid - they don't have to do house work - but the downside would be having to give away all her shoes!
