Emma lives with her boyfriend Dave and their two cats (Patti and Monkey) in a forest oasis outside of Missoula, Montana. She started her recovery from an eating disorder in 2016, and she has been gradually getting to know her more authentic self since then. Her spirit animal, she has been told by her Aunt, is a sloth. She likes to take it easy, snuggle in her favorite window corner at the library, watch the neighbor’s horses from the backyard hammock, write in her notebook, and crochet mini mandalas. She is a student of creative writing, and you can read some of her nonfiction work at Emmaparten.com.
