Hi! I’m Emma Pass, author of historical romance for adults, and dark, gritty fiction for young adults. My debut novel, ACID, won the North East Teenage Book Award and was picked by YALSA as a Top Ten Amazing Audiobook for 2015, and both ACID and my second novel, The Fearless, were nominated for the Carnegie Medal. The Fearless also won the 2016 Concorde Book Award.
In March 2022, Aria Fiction/Head of Zeus will be publishing my debut novel for adults, a romance set during World War 2 about Ruby, a young reporter and Sam, an American soldier who gets caught up in the events of D-Day.
I’ve also been commissioned to create a poetry-film for the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, and written a non-fiction e-guide on characterisation for TLC Press.
When I’m not writing, I teach creative writing and am a reader for The Literary Consultancy. In addition, I offer a mentoring and editing service and offer writing workshops on Zoom – you can find out more by clicking on the tabs above.
I’m represented by the brilliant Ella Kahn at Diamond, Kahn and Woods Literary Agency.
If there’s anything else you’d like to ask me, or if you’d like to enquire about workshops, editing or mentoring, please get in touch!
