A note from Emerald...

Thank you so much for visiting me! I thought I'd share a bit about myself and why I'm so passionate about writing in the first place.

I had dreamed of being an author for as long as I can remember. Some of my favourite novels have included a mystery (I love being held in suspense, trying to guess who did what, and why?). While I enjoy reading these stories, once I entered college, I realized there weren't many mysteries that focused on characters my age. They lacked the subjects and issues facing people from the ages of 18-28, and this inspired me to create characters I could relate to.  

I haven't stopped writing since, focusing on unpredictable stories that include suspense, thrills, and twists.  I enjoy spending time in the many worlds I create while writing. So please, take some time for yourself, curl up with one of my stories, and visit one of the worlds I've created just for you.
