Emma was born and raised on our rock. She’s been a fan of the bookstore ever since her mom wheeled her into the kids’ section as a baby so she could throw books on the floor.  As a result of getting a degree in Creative Writing from University of Iowa, she became all knowing about cows, corn and how our wonderful political system makes presidential aspirants grovel once every four years. She likes conspiracy theories, cultural and gender studies, science, mushroom identification, embroidery techniques, beekeeping, feminism, artificial intelligence, art, poetry and the classics.
