Emma lives with her husband Darren, two young children Toby and Chloe and fur baby Arthur in Devon.
Lawyer by day, representing nurses, she is now an author by night, inspiring patients having written and shared her story following an unexpected breast cancer diagnosis in 2019.
Throughout treatment Emma found journaling cathartic. Sending weekly mini blogs to her friends and family, and after calls of ‘You should write a book’ she thought ‘I bloody will’. ‘Take my hair (but not my humour): one mum’s journey seeing off breast cancer’ was self-published on the 1st of October 2020. She shares her ‘Bridget Jones’s Diary’ style journey through breast cancer treatment sharing the highs, the lows and everything in-between. She hopes to hold the hand of others going through similar big life experiences but also their loved ones who may be looking in and wondering how they can help.
Emma has always been a massive bookworm and is now throwing herself into writing after cancer gave her the kick up the arse needed to step out of her comfort zone. Instead of chasing her dreams she’s now grabbing them by the horns and is currently a co-author in two other soon to be published books.
