I've been a rehabilitation instructor, a library assistant, a postie, a waitress on the Isle of Skye, and even (briefly) a field assistant in Antarctica. I love to travel and have lived in Sweden, backpacked in Europe, and journeyed overland in the Middle East, China, North Africa, and North America. Most recently I've lived in Marlborough, New Zealand and worked in the wine industry.
I write fantasy novels (with strong elements of romance) as Emily Gee, and regency romance novels as Emily Larkin.

"Sexy, unusual, and vastly entertaining. The best historical romance I've read this year." ~ Anna Campbell, author of the Dashing Widows series
