About Emma Woodthorpe

Children's Author and Illustrator Emma Woodthorpe in the woods with her adventure-cat Rollie

Hello fellow bookworms! My name's Emma and I write and illustrate children's books. 

I've been drawing all my life and have always had a passion for books - both reading and writing them!


A million years ago I gained a First Class BA (Hons) in English Literature and an MA in Literature Studies from York St John University, which I'm very proud of. That place really helped to nurture my love of books.
