I’m Emmy, a 42-year-old Stay-At-Home-School-Mom to two boys, nine dogs, and a husband. I grew up Metro-Detroit and went to Siena Heights University in Adrian, Michigan before moving to Georgia. After spending more than a decade there with my husband, kids, and dogs we realized Georgia was still too cold for us and now call Costa Rica home where it’s summer all year and the seasons are; kind of dry, a little rainy, and deluge. I love it!

I write and publish fiction in multiple genres including epic fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, dystopian, speculative fiction, and supernatural horror ranging from young adult through four-flame +18. As you can tell I love all things that go bump in the night 😉

I also love food. Not only am I opening a small walk-up diner, I’ve published the first five cookbooks in my No Frills Cookbook Series, my coffee table cookbook TACO FREAKS (52 Recipes and Thoughts About the Best Day of the Week) publishes soon!

I hope my love and respect for my roots, the world, human and ‘others’ is obvious in my writing as I create new realms of existence with the Daearen Realms, several new never-before-written species of shifter with the Lupinski Clan, exploring what could happen if human survival was dependent on a computer algorithm in a co-written trilogy publishing soon, and whatever plot bunny hops in my head next!
