Emma grew up abroad in Uganda and Hong Kong and decided to write for a living while studying Russian at University. She travelled for a bit in India and got her first job as a reporter soon after returning to UK. She has been a journalist ever since, amassing about 30 years experience, mainly in Hong Kong, doing just about every kind of job a journalist can do. About 13 years ago she returned to the UK and soon afterwards joined the Financial Times where she still works full time, mainly as a writer.

Emma joined HWG in November 2012. She has helped advise on website issues as she worked for five years as an online editor.

Emma is just starting  to enter a few of the short story competitions that  HWG offers on a regular basis. She is hoping that getting the creative juices flowing will help her to fulfil her lifelong ambition to write a novel.
