Emma Barry


Emma Barry has been writing fiction since her right hand could dominate a pencil. In an attic somewhere there is a box of small construction-paper books she spent hours making as a kid, tongue between teeth.

Her fiction tends towards the dark side of human interaction. The ways people hurt each other and the intimate details of pain are carefully crafted in each of her varied stories. You'll think about them long after you've finished reading.

She has held every customer service job America has invented. She currently lives and loves in Portland, Oregon.
