Here is a synopsis of Emma’s first novel, which she is looking to publish:

The Lonely Half is a magical realist literary novel. It tells the story of Amelia, an introspective and nature-loving English girl hunting for the twin she believes she was separated from at birth. Her search takes her from the leafy streets of London’s Notting Hill to the desert sands of Israel, as she confronts a procession of ghosts, a Two-Thousand-Year-Old man, and the mystifying memories of her own childhood.

You can reach Emma via email.

Emma is also an English teacher in Tel Aviv, with a small business “English Sense” providing private lessons for adults.

Emma’s poems and short stories have been published all over the place. Here are a selection:

Emma is part of The Wondering Workshop, a creative writing workshop in Tel Aviv.
