Issy Emeney


Issy has been writing in one way or another since her first job in public relations many years ago. She later became a full-time folk musician and songwriter, touring the British festival and folk club circuit with her musician husband, David. She managed to fit in time to study fine art and achieve a first class honours degree along the way.

Teaching has always been an important part of Issy’s creative life, and she is an experienced and popular workshop leader with both adults and children.

Writing stories began when her three daughters, now grown up, were little. Today she combines her musical life with painting, and writing picture books.

Issy and her husband live in Somerset with Albie the cat.
