About Emma

Emma L.R. Hogg graduated from the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada and started the writing of her first novel, which eventually became Mercedes Mudd, published three years later.

Both The Fourth Wall and Winona Rising were shortlisted for the Whistler Independent Book Award for Fiction (2017 and 2018), and Winona Rising was a Finalist (2018).

In addition, her poetry has been published in Carousel magazine.

Emma's seventh novel, Picket Fences, was published by Tidewater Press in 2020.

Emma has also had short films selected by the Sault Film Festival, The Interview (2020) & Stanley (2021), and was a Top 10 Screenplay Finalist for her short film script, Nora, in the Hamilton Film Festival (2021).
