Hola! I am a blogger/ professional writer wanna be, based in Newcastle NSW. A complete country girl at heart I moved here 22 years ago and got the best of everything - a bigger city that is surrounded by country and vineyards and my very favourite thing life has to offer, the ocean! Swimming is probably my second favorite activity other than writing ...no wait, I forgot eating..oh and shit, sex of course I should probably say that too.... anyway you get the idea.
I also am pretty lucky to have my husband Luke by my side and our little grey ball of snuggles Molly the Cat.
I really wish I could say I was into more exciting things...like stand up paddle boarding and mountain bike riding, but really right now I am focused on not wearing my favourite yoga pants 3 days in a row and getting through the exciting times of IVF cycles. Oh and I am newly obsessed with The Bachelor franchise (I heart Ashley.I. always), fruit tingles and bubble baths. I also tend to trip over...a lot.
That's me in a nut shell - if you want the whole bag o' nuts though feel free to read on and learn more.
Emma has created a unique space where she blogs about her childhood memories and how they connect to her life and relationships now. Not really a memoir blog, but not really any other kind other - it very much matches her - a one of a kind!
Her original crack at blogging and getting her work out there into the world was a great success, with her first blog 'Till She Sings' gaining a readership of over 10,000.
The Emma Kate Collection explores Emma's life past and present, with a unique and creative perspective. Her emotive and raw essays compels her readers to look beyond the more traditional female blogs, connecting them with an intimate view point, with a creative edge. Emma explores themes that resonate with her female readership; infertility, IVF, body image, grief and loss.
A selection of her work can be found on the following online publications;
- Australia's largest female independant website, http://www.mamamia.com.au/grief-of-miscarriage/
- Online feminist independant magazine, http://lipmag.com/author/emma-brooker/
