About

Sara Rhys Illustrations

Emily has loved books for as long as she can remember.

As a small child, she enjoyed visiting the library and borrowing as many books as she possibly could. She remembers spending many happy hours reading before school in her mum’s old Volvo Estate!

She studied English Literature and Creative Writing at university before completing her PGCE and MA in Children’s Literature. Emily enjoys inspiring a love for all things bookish in her role as a secondary English teacher and in her spare time, Emily enjoys painting and reading the neverending pile of books in her TBR pile!

Emily lives with her partner of many years, her beloved cats and a trio of grumpy rabbits and likes spending time in her garden. She writes stories about children who don’t quite fit in and who have incredible adventures.
