Emma Pearse

Writer, editor, teacher, traveler

Emma is an Australian writer and editor living between NYC and Australia. She writes, edits, teaches and consults on book and article projects—and is available for all of it. Emma has written personal essays, culture and travel features for The New York Times, New York magazine, the Guardian, Elle, Smithsonian.com and more. She is slowly at work on her second book, a memoir about adoption, love, healing, travel and childhood. (Yep, all of those.) For her first book, which is in bookstores worldwide, Emma retraced the true story of an heroic Blue Heeler who was lost to her family and survived in the Australian wild for six months in 2010. (Sophie: The Incredible True Story of the Castaway Dog, even got a little write up on Oprah. See "My Book" page.)
