Emma Draper

Emma worked as a secondary school English teacher for ten years. It was her students who inspired her to start writing YA novels about the anxieties that come hand in hand with growing up.

When she’s not writing, Emma runs a book club for refugees who are learning English. She loves to grow fruits and vegetables, bake bread, practise yoga, read (obviously!), and hang out with her friends and family.

She grew up in Ontario, Canada, but now lives in Devon with her husband, dog, and the foxes in the garden.
