Sue Emms

Snapshot_20170729_1Sue Emms overcame a teacher’s declaration that she was ‘too stupid to ever read’ to become one of those annoying kids who lived with her head inside a book, magazine, or newspaper. Not too much has changed in the last fifty or so years, except she added a love of writing to her love of reading.

Emms has published novels, short stories, poetry and nonfiction in New Zealand and internationally, worked as a literary editor, manuscript assessor and editor, and teaches creative writing classes for the Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology.

She is currently rewriting The Kindred Stone, and hopes to publish in 2017.
