Emma Newman was born in a tiny coastal village in Cornwall during one of the hottest summers on record. Four years later she started to write stories and never stopped until she penned a short story that secured her a place at Oxford University to read Experimental Psychology. In 2011 Emma embarked on an ambitious project to write and distribute one short story per week—all of them set in her Split Worlds milieu—completely free to her mailing list subscribers. A debut short-story collection, From Dark Places, was published in 2011 and her debut post-apocalyptic novel for young adults, 20 Years Later, was published just one year later—presumably Emma didn’t want to wait another nineteen... Emma is also a professional audiobook narrator. She now lives in Somerset with her husband, son, and far too many books.
