Hi there! Thanks for stopping by my corner of the blogosphere. I’m Emily, and I’m a freelance writer, novelist, and public relations professional. I’m from Houston, but am now living in Singapore where it’s even more humid than back home!

I spend my time rearranging the 26 letters of the alphabet to create engaging copy for my clients, content for my blog, and chapters for my fiction books. When I’m not wrangling words, I’m wrangling my sweet children alongside my husband, Miles.

If you love words as much as I do, then you’re in the right spot! I love sharing writing advice and inspiration, which you’ll find on the writing page. If you need some fun ideas for your next book club meeting, you’ll find plenty on the Book Club HQ page. Want to laugh about the sugar and spice of everyday life? Be sure to check out my blatherings blog.

Since graduating from Texas A&M University (undergrad) and the University of Houston (Master’s), I’ve worked as a news radio reporter, public relations manager, and freelance writer. My work has been published in First for Women magazine, Houstonia magazine’s food blog, and I’m currently finalizing my first novel.
