Emma Pullar

Emma Pullar is a writer and book reviewer. Her picture book, Curly from Shirley, went to number four on the bestseller list and was named 'best opening lines' by NZ Post. As well as picture books, Emma writes online articles and speculative fiction. Her short horror story, London’s Crawling, which was published in the Dark Minds charity anthology, was a finalist for Twisted50 and shortlisted for the SJV Award. 

Emma has been writing dark tales since she was a little girl. The first picture book she wrote was called 'Attack of the Killer Wheelie Bins' and was about wheelie bins getting sick of people stuffing them with rubbish and so they started eating people! She then wrote a particularly disturbing story about two kids who fell down a pit and were eaten alive by a beast. It was graphic, her primary school teacher was concerned and called Emma's parents in for a meeting. It was agreed that Emma had a wild imagination and no intervention was needed.

Emma is from London but is also a New Zealand citizen and has lived in NZ and Australia, she now resides in a sleepy little village in Kent. When not writing, she can be found spending time with her three children, husband and naughty cat called Rupert. She also teaches Tai Chi. Emma loves dark stories and fantasy, and enjoys dreaming up twisted tales of torment and terror.
