Emma Louise Gill is a British-Australian writer, cat lover, nerd and bibliophile.

She writes speculative fiction with a dabble in other genres here and there. (Contemporary writing is published as E.L. Gill.) Novel-length, short stories, poetry, microfic–she writes any and all. Currently querying On Solar Winds, first book of the Archivist space opera series, and writing book two.

Emma lives in Perth, Western Australia. She acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land where she works and lives–the Bindjareb people of the Noongar Nation–and pays her respects to Elders past, present and emerging. She celebrates the stories, traditions, and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of all communities throughout Australia.

Emma is a fan of sunshine, chocolate, and the sound of the ocean. Once a marine biologist, then conservationist, high school science teacher, and now early childhood educator. Mum of two. If she’s not writing, she’s usually with kids, in nature, or asleep. Possibly all three.

Find her elsewhere on Twitter @emmagillwriter for daily comments on life, the universe and writing. She can’t decide between coffee or tea, but she’s always up for one of them, especially in a cafe by the sea. She’d love you to join her. Bring cat pics.
