I recently completed reading these three fantasy novels for Orion publishing. A superb, critically acclaimed and already best-selling debut from a stunning new author.

It was such a pleasure working in the Strathmore recording studio, particularly the lunchtime we spent trying to work out the accents characters from a fantasy world should have when heard by characters from a different part of the same world. It got very complicated!
I’m pleased to say that ‘Use It Or Lose It’ won a Silver in the Drama category of the Sony Radio Award.
Here’s what the judges said, “In awarding the Silver to this production, the drama panel was very impressed by the narrative structure and the way the sound employed played as much a part as the dialogue in telling this moving story of the loss of intellectual and sensory faculties. We thought it was a beautifully conceived idea, wonderfully executed.”
Emma has been performing in In The Gloaming, an anthology series of comedy-horror podcasts in the vein of Tales of The Unexpected and Hammer House of Horror released almost-monthly. Written and directed by Nathaniel Tapley and produced by Raoul Brand.
“I thought that was really pretty horribly funny… Tasteful the tale isn’t, but enjoyable for sure.” – Ramsey Campbell, Britain’s greatest living horror writer (‘Britain’s most respected living horror writer’, according the Oxford Companion to English Literature)
“These podcasts really are of high quality. The scripts are witty, the voice-acting accomplished, and the production quite professional…The comedy is of the best British kind; politically incorrect, biting satire where no subject matter is taboo. The third episode almost had me choking on my coffee when one of the characters started talking the specifics of lesbian love-making!” – Doc Horror
