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 finally settling in Brisbane Australia, and raising four boys. Before she started writing historical fiction, she was a freelance editor in the corporate world, which was definitely not half as exciting as writing rollicking romantic adventures. Her characters are fearless seafarers, even though in real life Emma gets disastrously sea sick. Discerning Grace, is the first book in The White Sails Series.


Her annual Twitter Pitch Party Calendar blog post is a popular go-to in the #WritingCommunity as a source of online events for writers to pitch manuscripts to literary agents in real time. An award-winning author of historical women's fiction, she is planning to follow The White Sails Series with some more romantic adventures in The Gold Hills Series.
