Emily Bullock

About me:


I graduated from Kings College, London with an English degree and MA in 19th Century Literature. I followed this love of plot to work in feature film production before seeing the light and pursuing writing full-time. I attained a distinction from the UEA Creative Writing MA. I have recently completed a creative writing PhD with the Open University. Currently tutoring for the Open University in Creative Writing, and still writing of course.


The Longest Fight was published by Myriad Editions in February 2015.
