What we particularly love about Emma's writing is that it always has an authentic dialogue and realistic characters. Well-researched and rich in contemporary detail.

My Creative Notebook

A Coming of Age Story with a difference... Florence's story shows that huge changes can be made at any age. Her courageous journey towards self-discovery kept me rooting for her the whole way.
