You found me! Hi. I’m a British-Australian writer, cat lover, nerd and bibliophile.

I write speculative fiction with a dabble in other genres here and there. Novel-length, short stories, poetry, microfic–any and all. Currently editing The Archivist, first of a new space opera series, and writing book two.

I live in Perth, Western Australia. I like the sunshine, chocolate, and the sound of the sea (who doesn’t?). Once a marine biologist, then conservationist, high school science teacher, and now early childhood educator. Mum of two. If I’m not writing, I’m usually with kids. Or asleep.

You can find me on Reddit under r/LynxWrites for weekly short stories. On Twitter @emmagillwriter for daily comments on life, the universe and writing. And usually on some device tapping away. I can’t decide between coffee or tea, but I’m always up for one of them. Come join me.

I acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where I work and live–the Bindjareb people of the Noongar Nation–and pay my respects to Elders past, present and emerging. I celebrate the stories, traditions, and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people of all communities who also work and live on this land.
