Emily Albright was born in Salt Lake City, and her parents moved her all over the continental US growing up. As a result, she now knows several places that she could never move to. As an only child, often in a new city, Emily spent all of her time lost in the worlds of her favorite books and making up imaginary places and friends to keep her company. A graduate of the University of Oregon, she received a degree in journalism and communication. She now gets to spend her days going back to her roots, dreaming up heroes and heroines and putting them in awkward or sometimes swoony situations. Emily now makes her home in the Pacific Northwest with her handsome husband, her amazing daughter, their crazy cock-a-poo, and feisty kitten. She has no intention of ever leaving the PNW…well, unless she could somehow finagle a free and adorable cottage in Scotland, but that seems highly unlikely. When Emily isn’t writing, she’s usually reading, and when she’s not reading, she’s binge-watching Netflix or her DVR. She always has a glass of tea at her side and usually something furry cuddled up to her. Emily is the author of The Heir and the Spare series and Perfect Harmony.
