Emily has always been in the business of telling stories. She began her by career weaving narratives together as a video editor for a TV channel before moving into the field of marketing: designing branding and copywriting for small businesses. Now she spends her time writing and illustrating picture books for children. Emily was born in England and raised on the Norfolk coast but has lived in South Africa for the past thirteen years. She works from home in sunny Cape Town where her company is tolerated by the two family dogs, Pip and Bob and, perhaps more reluctantly, by the cat, Muffin. When the weekend arrives, you’ll often find her exploring the local mountain trails on foot or on her trusty mountain bike. Learn more about her work at www.emilyhousedesign.com.
