Press Pack

Here you will find information about me, my books and high resolution pictures for your use.

I am always delighted to be a guest on podcasts and will happily take part in Skype conversations with book groups who have read my work. I write science fiction, published by Roc (an imprint of Penguin Random House) and urban fantasy published by Diversion Books. In 2017 two new historical fantasy novellas will be published by Tor.com. (You can find more information about individual books below.) If you would like to interview me, please get in touch via my contact form.

I am represented by Jennifer Udden of the Barry Goldblatt Literary Agency.

I am also an audio book narrator. If you’d like to know more about that, visit my audiobooks page.

Emma Newman writes dark short stories and science fiction and urban fantasy novels. She won the British Fantasy Society Best Short Story Award 2015 and ‘Between Two Thorns’, the first book in Emma’s Split Worlds urban fantasy series, was shortlisted for the BFS Best Novel and Best Newcomer 2014 awards. Her first science-fiction novel, Planetfall, was published by Roc in 2015. Her second SF novel, After Atlas, was shortlisted for the 2017 Clarke Award. Emma is an audiobook narrator and also co-writes and hosts the Hugo-nominated, Alfie Award winning podcast ‘Tea and Jeopardy’ which involves tea, cake, mild peril and singing chickens.
