Profile: Emma Woodcock

About This Author

Emma Woodcock has worked variously as a pump jockey, envelope stuffer, librarian, potter, and web designer. She lives in Derbyshire with a boyfriend and a child – but still no dog, despite her constant hints… She has been trying to write books for the past quarter century, but the need to make a living kept getting in the way. She has now perfected the ability to live on twigs and acorns in order to pursue her literary ambitions. Darklands is her first novel. It will be followed in 2012 by Kikimora, the story of a reluctant monster, a heart-broken magician, a frustrated violinist, a kind-hearted Rusalka - and the magician's cat, who just might have the solution to all their problems. Emma’s writing heros are Diana Wynne Jones, Neil Gaiman and Philip Reeve. She would very much like to one day write something as magical, enthralling and oh, just perfect as Howl’s Moving Castle, Stardust or Mortal Engines
