Author has written 4 stories for Romance.

Holaaaaa. My name is Emma, I'm seventeen years old, I live in London, and I like long walks on the beach at sunset. Jokes. Pleeeaaasseee click through to any of my stories and read away. But if you do, you better review- I'll be watching.

If you'd like to see pictures of my characters, as well as other tidbits I might eventually put up, you can go to my site here and check it out!

Bedlam, Inc. (In Progress)- Layney Aldridge is a senior at Yale on spring break in Miami with her girlfriends when she sees something she never imagined she'd witness. She sees someone be killed in cold blood. From then on, nothing in her life will ever be the same. She gets swept up into the world of Tanner Grayson, assassin and businessman extraordinaire and his mysterious world of Bedlam, Incorporated. She's given a choice, considered generous by Tanner: die or go to England with him to work for the company. Naturally, she picks life in England. But there's one small catch... She has to marry him.

The Letdown (On Hiatus)- Formerly 'Growing Up Lonely'. He loves her. She loves him, just not the right him. When two people have grown so far apart, is there anything that can bring them back together? Love? Friends? Pain? There's a difference between ignoring what's in front of you and not knowing love. Blake Keegan is used to be disappointed. He's used to going in headstrong and making a splash, but then getting out before he gets in too deep. Resident heartbreaker, he represents everything Kayleigh Brody despises in men. But the one thing she doesn't know... he's spent his entire life trying to be the very person she could learn to love.

I May Be in Love With Spiderman (DISCONTINUED)- This will be removed from fictionpress on Saturday, May 8th at approximately 12:00 pm GMT. Say your goodbyes before then! It's sad that it has to go, but it's run its course. The Letdown (formerly Growing Up Lonely) has taken its spot. Please read and review that! Also, take a look at my new story, Bedlam, Inc.

Latkes on the Ceiling (Complete)- Noa (forever plagued with a boy's name) just wants to survive her last two years of high school without strangling her mother, is that too much to ask? No, of course not. But throw in an annoying brother, irritating Jewish relatives, and three boys who just WON'T leave her alone, Noa realizes that someone's going to be strangled, and SOON.

Here's the link to my published non-fiction piece:Half of Me

AUTHOR ALERT! Wow. The last time I wrote to you, it was the end of the first quarter and it seemed like the year was never going to end. Well, there have been some ups and downs since then, but I made it! I am a second semester, college-bound senior now. Nothing can phase me! Other than the fact that I haven't updated anything in forever. So I apologize. I hope you are all waiting with bated breath for the next installment of Bedlam, Inc. Hopefully, it'll live up to your expectations and maybe even surpass them! We'll see, won't we?

Thanks to everyone who's reviewed ANYTHING, EVER. You've really helped a lot and I hope more people read my stories and review to keep me going.

Lots of love, Emma
