Author of Ruinsong and The Seafarer’s Kiss duology.
Julia Ember was born in Chicago, but has since succumbed to a lifetime of wanderlust. She has lived in London and Edinburgh, and has traveled to more than sixty countries. She currently lives in Seattle with her wife and their city menagerie of pets with literary names.
She is the author of The Seafarer’s Kiss and The Navigator’s Touch published by Interlude Press. The duology was heavily influenced by Julia’s postgraduate work in Medieval Literature at the University of St Andrews. The Seafarer’s Kiss was named a “Best Queer Book of 2017” by Book Riot, and was a finalist in the Speculative Fiction category of the Bisexual Book Awards. Her upcoming novel, Ruinsong, will be published by Macmillan Kids (FSG) in January 2021.
Julia also writes scripts for games, and is the author of several published novellas and short stories.
