Emma Lombard was born in Pontefract in the UK. She grew up in Africa - calling Zimbabwe and South Africa home for a few years - before settling in Brisbane, Australia. Before she started writing historical fiction, she mastered goat wrangling (mother to four teenage sons).

Emma is an Editrix (no relation to Bellatrix Lestrange - just a fancy name for female editor), including Multiplicity newsletter editor for the Brisbane Multiple Birth Association (Southside) - back in the day of the printed edition. She has lent her editing prowess to various industries including aviation, aquatic ecology and education, as well as the world of academia.

Emma is also a writer for ENVIE! Magazine (https://enviemagazine.com/), and a blog tour host for The Coffee Pot Book Club (https://www.coffeepotbookclub.com/). Her blog series Twitter Tips for Newbies is popular in Twitter's #WritingCommunity for helping writers (new to Twitter) navigate the platform and find their voices on social media. She has also written guest posts for Jane Friedman's award-winning blog.

Emma is the author of the upcoming historical adventure, DISCERNING GRACE. To connect with her or enquire about being a guest blogger, please email
