I Love Books!
I needed to shout that. Now I feel better. I love reading books as much as I love writing them. And I love them so much, I don’t stick to just one genre. I mostly write what I read which is clean middle grade, Young Adult, and nonfiction books. I like dystopian, paranormal, and romance the most. My imagination is simply too large to contain!
I have been writing in some form since I was about four years old. If I wasn’t writing, I was imagining stories in my head. In high school I wrote really bad poetry. But I didn’t really start writing long stories until after I had a dream which continued for two nights in a row. It didn’t repeat. It continued. Like a book. The following day, I sat down to write the story out and before I knew it, I had written forty pages before getting up again. I haven’t stopped writing since.
Where do I get my book ideas? Sometimes from dreams, sometimes from real life (which often truly is stranger than fiction), and other times they just suddenly pop into my head.
When I am not drooling over books, I work as a genetic genealogist where I find birth parents using DNA. You can find me working as a family detective at www.missinglinkdna.com.
The rest of my time is spent with my two sons here in the Pacific Northwest.
I write fiction under the pen name Emmaline Rose and nonfiction as Emmaline MacBeath.
