Emily Tallman

This Rhode Island native has wanted to be a storyteller since hearing her first bedtime fairytale.  She asked for a word processor for Christmas at age four and has kept her promise to Santa by writing every day since.

Her first series of books has been set in motion with the hope of making mental illness a more readily accessible topic. She writes characters with mental illness as the heroes with the goal that more people will see themselves as worthwhile individuals and no longer just horror movie villains.

Emily’s love of the supernatural, science fiction, and fantasy will surely be explored in later works of fiction, romance, and children’s books.
