Emma Pass has been making up stories for as long as she can remember. She wrote her first novel – a sequel to Jurassic Park – when she was 13 in maths lessons with her notebook hidden under her work.
Her debut novel, Acid, was published by Random House in 2013. It won the 2014 North East Teenage Book Award, was shortlisted for the Doncaster Book Award and a Silver Inky Award, longlisted for the 2014 Branford Boase Award and nominated for the 2014 CILIP Carnegie Medal. Her second novel, The Fearless, was published by Random House in 2014, and was also nominated for the Carnegie Medal.
Emma lives in Derbyshire with her artist husband and crazy greyhound G-Dog. She owns far too many books and dreams of having her own library one day. When she’s not writing, she runs workshops in schools and community settings and a young writers group for Writing East Midlands. She is co-founder of Author Allsorts, a popular blog showcasing over 50 UK-based children’s and YA authors and illustrators, and co-organiser of the UKYA and UKMG Extravaganzas, regional events which bring authors and readers together to celebrate UK children’s and YA literature.
