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.

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.

Today she combines her musical life with painting, and writing picture books. Her first picture book, The Wonderful Miss Wanda, will be published by Simon & Schuster in Summer 2021.

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