A native Minnesotan, nothing makes Emily happier than reading by the fireplace while it's blizzarding outside.

As a veteran high-school English teacher, her favorite subject is British Literature, especially the Chaucer poems. As a juggler, she uses her students for guinea pigs to perform her short plays, and she often conducts a Jester Academy that teach kids to juggle and tell corny jokes. In her spare times, she bakes bread and studies chess.
