Emma Austen


I think I came into writing because there was nothing better to do. Raised in a small town in the middle of nowhere, where two inches of rainfall is hailed as a miracle, I spent most of my life writing stories. In elementary school, I was writing books on lined paper and binding them with scotch tape — terrible books, mind you, but books none the less.

I can’t justify what I write or why I write it. I don’t have some deep story about how it began. However, what I do have is a passion for the stories I tell, and a need to share them with the world. That’s what it takes to be a writer, no?

While you’re here, check out my story The Xavier Mosaic. It’s a lot more interesting than I am.
