Emily Ross received a 2014 Massachusetts Cultural Council finalist award in fiction for HALF IN LOVE WITH DEATH. Her fiction and nonfiction have been published in Boston Magazine, Menda City Review, and The Smoking Poet. She is an editor and contributor at Dead Darlings, a website dedicated to discussing the craft of novel writing. She attended Sarah Lawrence College and the University of Massachusetts Boston, and is a 2012 graduate of Grub Street’s Novel Incubator program.

She supports her writing habit by working as a software developer, and has been coding since before the existence of the Internet, the iPhone, or any tech gadget that is remotely cool. She loves dark mysteries, television shows like True Detective, Mad Men, and Breaking Bad, and anything noir.

She is the mother of two millennials and lives in Quincy Massachusetts with her husband, Dave, and her elusive cat, Beau.
