Hi there! My name is Emma, I’m 30, and based in Liverpool, England.

I have a BA in English Literature and an MA specialising in Early Modern Literature, both from Lancaster University. (I miss it, a lot.) By day I work in academic publishing because I just don’t know how to quit you, academia.

I’m a reader, coffee lover, unashamed fangirl, and a romantic masquerading as a cynic. Always simping for a well-conceived and/or dark-haired villain tbqh and I’m no longer ashamed of that. I mostly read fiction, specifically young-adult fantasy and contemporary romance, and my favourite authors include Neil Gaiman, Leigh Bardugo, V.E. Schwab, Christina Lauren, and Emily Henry.

I can be found over on Twitter, Instagram and Goodreads. Likewise, any comments, queries, and/or criticism can be directed straight into my inbox at theterrorofknowingblog AT gmail DOT com.
