Author of Milton the Mighty
About Emma Read
Emma was once a very sensible biologist. Now she uses her transferable talents such as attention to detail, patience and fine motor skills, to extract Lego from under the sofa. And of course to write children's books.
Her other dream jobs include being an Egyptologist, or the first human on Mars. There's always hope.
Milton the Mighty is Emma's first novel, and was shortlisted for the 2017 Bath Children's Novel Award.
She lives in Bath with her young family and many, many notebooks.
