Hey friends! So, I thought I'd do an extended "get to know the girl behind the Instagram" section here because, let's be honest, how much can I really say in an Instagram bio? Not much ;-)
Though it may be obvious, my name is Emilie (and yes, I have to spell this out every time...) and I was born and raised in a really small town in Northern California. Skip ahead and I've lived in Northern Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and now live in Dayton, Ohio. I went to school for music and play the flute, saxophone, piano (badly), viola (really badly), guitar and I sing. I am also a songwriter, though I haven't had time to write in a while. You can hear some of my original songs here.
I'm sure you've all heard me talk about my passion for writing. My dream is to become a published author and I'm getting there - slowly but surely! I have a fantastic agent and interest in some of my books which is SO exciting. I write romantic suspense and YA science fiction. I love a great romance but I also love fast-paced action which you'll find in anything I write. For more about my writing check out my blog: Thinking Thoughts.
Aside from all of that, here are some random facts about me:
Above all, I believe in being genuine. I'm an introverted extrovert - or an Ambivert as I like to call myself - and I love people. The most important thing for me is to be honest about who I am in my interactions with others. It's too easy to change who you are depending on who you're with, but I made a decision that I would be the same in any circumstance when I headed off to college, and I have tried my best to remain true to that to this day. I love Jesus and He is the motivation for how I see and love others.
