Emma has recently realised that she is a nerd. She never liked late nights, doesn’t like sport and loves etymology.
Your host at Readable has been in love with words since she learnt to read.
One of her most cherished childhood memories is her big sister, Leisa, reading to her under the tank stand (a small, damp room underneath a water tank at the back of our house).
Emma wanted to be an artist but it turns out that she is much better at writing than painting, a fact that she is still coming to terms with.
