Hello, I'm Emma Woodthorpe


I'm a children's author and illustrator living in Sheffield, England. Having gained a First Class BA (hons) in English Literature and an MA in Literature Studies, I now combine my passion for reading and writing with my art and illustration business Embers and Ink to create children's rhyming picture books.


I have previously worked as a Teaching Assistant working with Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 Children, and have first hand knowledge about the importance of reading for children. I also spent a brief period of time working as an office assistant for an independent publisher in York...

Books are my bag, baby.

Please contact me if you would like to enquire about my work or book readings and events.
