About the Author
Emery worked in county government and as a college writing tutor before retiring and becoming a gentleman author. He and his wife Robyn, herself raised mistakenly as a boy, live on Maui where they combine snorkeling, scuba diving, and volunteer work with activities to boost LGBT rights and awareness.
Interested in the martial art of Ninjutsu, land and underwater photography, and writing, Emery can most often be found writing, reading, or sailing on his imaginary pirate ship.
Emery's 2010 first novel, 'Last Year's Leaves' is an intense story of recovery from abuse, finding love, living through loss, and coming out whole. For all the intensity, the book is laced with his trademark humor. His recent publications include five other, less intense coming of age novels involving coming out and overcoming obstacles as well as two books of short stories, and completely straight kids' book, and close to a dozen eBooks. All are immensely humorous and filled with hope. Drystan the Dire, Emery's Welsh pirate ancestor, shows up in his stories from time to time to help out and to annoy the bad guys.
Between them, the Walters have eight adult children, umpteen grandchildren, and one never-seen great grandchild, none of whom can do a thing about the genetic material handed down to them - their gift to the future. So there.
