Originally from Chicago, Julia Ember now resides in Edinburgh, Scotland. She lives with partner and their city based menagerie of pets with Harry Potter themed names. Luna Lovegood and Sirius Black the cats currently run her life. Julia is a bisexual writer and regularly takes part in events for queer teens.
Julia began writing at the age of nine, when her short story about two princesses and their horses won a contest in Touch magazine. In 2016, she published her first novella, Unicorn Tracks, with Harmony Ink Press. It also focused on two girls and their equines, albeit those with horns. Unicorn Tracks was a finalist in the Florida Authors and Publishers’ Association awards for Young Adult fiction. Her first novel, The Seafarer’s Kiss, was released by Interlude Press in May 2017. It was heavily influenced by her postgraduate work in Medieval literature at the University of St. Andrews. It is now responsible for her total obsession with beluga whales.
