I’m Emma Maree Urquhart, a writer and software tester from the windswept north of Scotland.
My debut children’s fantasy novel DRAGON TAMERS was self-published in the UK when I was 13, with sales of over 35,000 copies and has been traditionally published in Dutch, Danish, Finnish, Swedish, Greek, and Portuguese.
I’m now in my late 20s and work as a software tester, spending my days finding creative ways to break websites and apps and my nights finding creative ways to break fictional characters. On the weekends I can be found learning roller derby with the local Helgin Roller Derby team, binge drinking tea, making art and taking long brainstorming walks in the woods.
I’m represented by literary agent John Jarrold.
