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 querying On Solar Winds, first book of the Archivist space opera series, and writing book two.

I live in Perth, Western Australia. 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 throughout Australia.

I like 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 I’m not writing, I’m usually with kids. Or asleep.

Find me elsewhere 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. Especially in a cafe by the sea. Come join me.
