Hello. I’m Emily, and sometimes (rarely) I get paid to write things.
I’m also a recent graduate of Arizona State University with my BS in Technical Communication. I hope to one day become a full-time writer and novelist, though that day is still a while coming. My favorite genres are science fiction and zombies. I really, really, really like zombies.
My writing is character-driven and examines the strange ways people react to difficult situations. I truly believe that good writing can have a meaningful impact on the world and hope to hone my skills so that I can one day make that impact. With that in mind, I work to normalize LGBTQIA+ identities and relationships through stories and focus on strong—yet flawed—female leads. My current writing tastes tend towards horror and surrealist short stories.
I can be found holed away in my Connecticut apartment with my Flemish giant rabbit Frankenstein, parakeets Koenig and Doohan (nickname Slushy), and African clawed frog Geronimo (nickname Frog), usually with a mug of coffee in hand and a laptop filled with half-written stories. Sometimes I paint and draw, though less often than I’d like.
Here you can find my blog, ongoing writing projects, and links to work published elsewhere. Much of the writing I post is unfinished, unpolished, and various other un-words. I consider everything I write to be a work-in-progress, some more than others.
Feel free to say “hi” using the Contact page, you get bonus points if you can tell me about a cool literary mag I should check out.
