Emma Elizabeth

I am an emerging historical fiction author with a long-held fascination for family history secrets, both real and fictional. I have a passion for weaving intriguing stories, intertwining modern day lives with the lives of yesteryear through place, artefacts, culture and family.

I have lived in an historic goldfields region of Australia for most of my life, on the lands of the Dja Dja Warrung and the Wadawurrung people. I have a deep appreciation for the traditional custodians of this land, and for those who have arrived from all corners of the globe.

I have been writing professionally for almost 30 years. Janet’s Yellow Butterflies is my first novel, and its completion fulfills a life-long dream.
