    Hi from Down Under!

    Hey guys!

    I'm Emma, a twenty-something YA & New Adult writer from the other side of the world to most of you. I can't wait to do some exploring around the threads and make new writer friends - I have next to none, so I'd love to get to know you all!

    Hope everyone's 2013 has been great thus far!

    Emma
