Interview With an Author

Interview with an Author: Emma Grey

Emma is a novelist, feature writer, photographer, professional speaker and accountability coach.

​She has been writing fiction since she first fell for Anne of Green Gables at fourteen and is the author of the YA novels UNREQUITED, TILLY MAQUIRE AND THE ROYAL WEDDING MESS, the non-fiction title, I DON’T HAVE TIME (co-authored with Audrey Thomas), and the parenting memoir WIT’S END BEFORE BREAKFAST! CONFESSIONS OF A WORKING MUM. 

Along with her school friend, dual ARIA-winning composer, Sally Whitwell, Emma co-wrote two musicals, DEADPAN ANTI-FAN and FAIRYTALE DERAIL, based on her teen novels.

She wrote her first adult novel, THE LAST LOVE NOTE, in the wake of her husband’s death. It’s a fictional tribute to their love, an attempt to articulate the magnitude of her loss and a life-affirming commitment to hope.

Emma lives just outside Canberra, Australia, where her world centres on her two adult daughters, young son, loved step-children and step-grandchildren, writing, photography and endlessly chasing the Aurora Australis.
