A New Jersey native, Bella Emy enjoys spending her summers down the shore with her family. Of course, her laptop and iPad are always at her side!
As a child, you could always find her enjoying her days cuddled up to an R. L Stine book. The “Goosebumps” books were her favorite, and later on, the “Fear Street” ones replaced them. She would also enjoy the “Babysitters Club” books.
Not long after discovering her passion for reading, Bella began writing novellas realizing that being an author would one day be a dream come true for her. Writing started something special within her that she just could no longer stay away from.
Some of her favorite authors these days include: Nicholas Sparks, Kristin Hannah, and Lili St. Germain. Bella Emy also loves discovering new authors.
One thing that she always says is that if she’s not writing, she’s reading, and if she’s not reading, she’s writing!
