More about Emmie B.!
Hi, there reader!
I was reading from an early age, and if I wasn’t reading by myself I was being read to by my mom and my Pap Pap. Most of my time away from school was spent reading. I spent two days a week at the local Barnes and Noble in Newport, RI for a book club and the American Girl book club. My mom also took my sister and me to the local public library once a week.
I started reading Junie B. Jones books in first grade. I also read Judy Moody and the Magic Treehouse books. In third grade, I started reading Harry Potter, The Unfortunate Events, and the Secrets of Droon. As I got older, I fell in love with the Percy Jackson series, Vampire Academy books, the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Dresden Files.
All of these books influenced what I wanted to write because they were the books I loved to read.
I absolutely love the idea of magic. I still believe in the Tooth Fairy, Santa Clause, elves, Winnie the Pooh, and Hogwarts. And so I wanted to deliver the magic that I carried with me to others. That’s how I started writing the Little Witches series. I wanted to share my magic with the little girls in my life (my nieces and cousins).
