Blackbrooke is her debut young adult horror novel after spending many years honing her skills drafting short stories and devouring horror through the ages from R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps collection through to Stephen King.
Blackbrooke is the Part I of the Blackbrooke Trilogy.
Emma is also the author of a semi-biographical account of her dad’s years in a rock band in the 1970s, Driving Exile.
She gets most of her ideas and is inspired by music and also the fighting spirit of young people who aren’t afraid to challenge the norm and stand up for what they believe in. This fleeting ‘moment’ in life is what she tries to capture in her writing.
