About Emma Bull

Two of Emma’s favorite childhood memories are of typing out nonsense words on her parents’ black Royal manual typewriter, and watching the neighbor mow the lawn. She went to Beloit College, where she majored in English, then moved to Minneapolis, where there are two seasons: Snow removal and road repair. (Or, as it sometimes seems, snow repair and road removal.)

After that, she moved back to her native southern California, where she would’ve driven with the top down if she’d had a convertible. She was a resident of the Republic of Bisbee (AZ) and loved it (except on the few days of the year when there was snow). And now she’s living in Tucson, Arizona, where she would ride the range if she had a pony. But she does have a great cowboy hat.

She’s written novels, screenplays, a children’s book, and short stories. She and her husband, Will Shetterly, are members of the Interstate Writers’ Workshop, aka The Scribblies. Emma and Will conduct writing workshops now and then; they’ve taught in Los Angeles, at Clarion West, the Pima Writers Workshop, and elsewhere.

Emma played guitar and sang in the Flash Girls, a goth-folk duo. She was a member of Cats Laughing, a psychedelic improv folk-jazz band that included Steven Brust, Adam Stemple, Lojo Russo, and Bill Colsher.

She is the producer for Shadow Unit, a webfiction project she shares with Elizabeth Bear, Sarah Monette, Will Shetterly, and Amanda Downum. It combines novella-length episodes of a series story with hypertext “DVD extras” and character on-line journals. Contributing writers in its eight-episode second “season” include Holly Black and Leah Bobet.

I very rarely write reviews of products or books. With that in mind, let me just say that Ms. Bull has written a thoroughly enjoyable series of books. I've just finished book 1, and will now get the rest. Great cast of characters with excellent development. I can "smell" the roots of these works; "Criminal Minds", "X-Files", "NCIS", "CSI" ( the original if you please ) and these have successfully been welded into an airtight story line.
Keep 'em coming Emma. And if you , reader , have not found these books - you're just not looking hard enough.

Emma Bull and Elizabeth Bear have begun a great new series. I will read the rest of the books but knowing the skill of these two, I have no doubt that the quality will continue a the same high level as this book.

Cool stuff! I came here for Elizabeth Bear, but it is great that all the other writer's stories work just as well. It is bloody addictive though - I hope that my binge reading now doesn't destroy it for me!

I agree with what almost everyone says about the series: the writing and characters are excellent (and addictive!). Content-wise, I am frequently reminded of a cross between X-Files & Criminal Minds.

The great thing about all the Shadow Unit books is the characters. There are 9 main characters, and these are all real, fully-realized people. All the writers for the show-- Bull, Bear, Shetterly Bobet,Downum, Polk-- are published professionals. This really IS "the best TV show you've never seen." IF you buy volume one, you WILL want to go on reading. As I write, there are 10 volumes, with an 11th promised Real Soon Now.

An amazing book. While the description tells you what the book is built around, it's who you're reading about that really makes this wonderful. A whole host of well-developed, distinct and compelling characters, dealing with fascinating issues.
