Who is Michelle Emerson?

I’m an introvert. There I’ve said it.

So no doubt you’ll appreciate, this page makes me squirm slightly. 

But I do know it’s the best way for you to decide if we’re a good fit for working together.

So here’s a sketchy snippet about me and mine to reassure you that I’m a friendly, genuine, wordy nerdy kinda girl with precisely the kind of credentials you’re looking for to help you publish your book with confidence.




I live near Durham (north-east England), surrounded by rolling hills and gorgeous walks.

I’m mum to a teenage boy and a teenage girl (yep… there are lots of hormones in our house) and Buddy, our cute as pie Shih Tzu.

When I’m not running, my favourite solo quiet time treat is walking with an Audible book streaming through my earphones.



I love, love, love spending my days writing.  Whether I’m working on my book or content for my business, or proofreading/editing or publishing my clients’ books is irrelevant.

I just love the fact that I get to publish books and word weave for a living.  Having worked in publishing for 20+ years, I know it’s definitely my calling. 


I graduated from the Open University when I was 40 (I’m a late developer) with a First Class BA Honours in English Language and Literature, plus a Diploma in Creative Writing and Literature.

I have a BTEC National Diploma in Business & Finance (with Secretarial Skills) and I’m also a qualified Teeline Shorthand tutor.

I’m a non-fiction author – click here to view my Amazon Author Central page.
