EMILY has been writing in the entertainment and publishing fields for more than 20 years. She has written extensively for Disney, FOX, ABCFamily, The Hub and other companies, large and small. She is also the author of Drive, a full-length play that premiered at Company of Angels in Los Angeles. Her blog, Pura Vida Loca, documented her family’s adventures while living in Costa Rica. She is currently a television and theater critic for the VCReporter and loves that she can justify watching bad TV. She really needs to get a hobby, because when she’s not writing for work, she’s writing for love. When she’s not obsessing about words, she’s hanging out with her husband, twin daughters and dog, Dara. The only other things that verge on being hobbies are reading (there are those words, again!), hiking (walking, really), doing yoga and pretending to meditate. She swears she’ll actually empty her thoughts one day. Hopefully, there will be a laptop nearby to write them all down.
