About the author
Emma was once a very sensible biologist. Now she uses her transferable talents such as attention to detail, patience and fine motor skills, to extract Lego from under the sofa. And of course to write children's books.
Her favourite things in the world are: badges, Death On the Nile, hats, foxes, deserts, desserts and Buck Rogers. Her one regret in life is never having trained to be an astronaut.
About Milton the Mighty
When little spider Milton discovers he’s been branded deadly on social media and is targeted by pest-killers BugKILL. To clear his name and save his species, Milton realises he must communicate with his house humans, a schoolgirl called Zoe, and her arachnophobic dad. Is he mighty enough to achieve the impossible?
Milton the Mighty is Emma's first novel, and was shortlisted for the 2017 Bath Children's Novel Award.
