A jealous husband, a wife torn between duty and her desire for a more fulfilling life. Maggie has made bad choices along the way, but does she deserve a second chance? In the exotic world of 1970s Jakarta, she's about to risk everything to follow her heart...

NAMED BY ELLE MAGAZINE AS 'BEST HOLIDAY READING' FOR IBIZA

Bio

Welcome to my website! I am an author and a blogger. Since 2012, I have published two historical novels on Amazon’s Kindle platform. My third book is taking shape after I won a place on the Curtis Brown Creative writing course. Scribbling away makes me happy, as does walking my black Labrador in the local countryside. When someone tells me they can’t put down one of my books, that makes my day!

My blog An Author's Notebook views the world through a literary eye. Posts range from a wry look at family life to travel diaries, interviews and general thoughts about life in a middle-aged rut. Before I turned to fiction, journalism was my thing - BBC News Online and the financial press. Click here for a full acount of what I've done. Or you could just read a book, preferably one of mine...

 

Reviews

Emma is such a talented writer and her books are easy to read as they flow so smoothly that you quickly become engrossed in the story.

I particularly loved the wartime sections of A Sister for Margot and how these were interwoven with the modern settings. Intelligently plotted, engrossing period detail and thoughtfully portrayed characters.

The Puppet Master transports you into an exotic, high-society world... Heartbreaking, spell-binding and beautifully written.
