Emma Clayton

Emma Clayton spent her teens playing in indie bands and doodling with comic artists. In her twenties she studied screenwriting before becoming an author; The Roar and The Whisper were inspired by her love of film, particularly the Steven Spielberg films she had watched as a child.

In 2013 Emma took a road trip in America, and is now working on a novel inspired by that journey. In her spare time she enjoys hiking up England’s mistier mountains, driving her leaky Land Rover and eating Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
