Emily McKay writes the kinds of books she wants to read—fast-paced with snarky heroines and swoony heroes who inhabit fascinating worlds you want to get lost in. She loves stories, pop culture, celebrity gossip, and baked goods. She’s a modern-day hippie and certified LEGO nerd. Emily lives in the Texas Hill Country with her geeky husband and their two extremely geeky kids. They have dogs, chickens, cats, and more LEGOs than should be allowed by law. Oh, and she stress bakes. So if her characters talk about food a lot, that’s why. emilymckay.com
