Hi there! I’m Emily, and I’m the author of the Hadley Home Design Cozy Mystery series and the women’s fiction novel Big Fat Positive.

When I’m not writing, I’m spending time with my family and friends, playing tennis, and volunteering. 

I graduated from Texas A&M University with a Journalism degree and the University of Houston with a Master’s in Public Relations. I’ve worked in news radio, corporate public relations, and as an independent PR consultant.
