Emily May grew up in a house full of books—her mother worked as a proofreader and librarian, and her father is a well-known New Zealand novelist. Emily has studied a wide number of subjects, including geology and geophysics, canine behavior and ancient Greek. Her varied career includes stints as a field assistant in Antarctica and a waitress on the Isle of Skye. Most recently she has worked in the wine industry in Marlborough, New Zealand.
Emily loves to travel and has lived in Sweden, backpacked in Europe and traveled over land in the Middle East, China and North Africa. She enjoys climbing hills, yoga workouts, watching reruns of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and reading. She is especially fond of Georgette Heyer’s Regency and Georgian novels.
Emily writes Regency romances as Emily May and dark, romantic fantasy novels as Emily Gee.
