About The Author

Emily English Profile Picture

Emily Peraro English

Emily has spent most of her career as a systems analyst, writing and editing technical documentation and requirements for enterprise-wide systems. If that wasn’t thrilling enough, in her spare time (aka the wee hours of the night) and over the course of five years, she completed her first novel Uniting the Heavens, a story that had taken root in her skull almost 20 years ago.

Emily is heavily influenced by (and obsessed with) anime and the Final Fantasy video game series. She lives with her husband, two daughters, and a high-anxiety dorgi in the Washington metropolitan area.

Emily is currently working on Book 2 of the Uniting the Heavens series.

...English’s storytelling is as compelling as her intricate world-building, and I’m excited about the prospect of a follow-up book to expand even deeper into the evocative realms of this universe.
— Scott (Goodreads Review)
