Meet Our Next Silver Pen: Harley Emmons!!
Woohoo! We have another awesome word warriors who has hit >15,000 words! Congratulations, Harley Emmons of Yokohama, Japan!!
Feel free to congratulate Harley on her website, Twitter, NaNoWriMo, or her Malala Fund fundraising page! We’re sure she’d love to hear from you!
Or read on, to learn more about Harley and her project!
What is your favorite book and/or author, and what draws you to them?
Recently, Emily B. Martin. Her first two books of ‘Creatures of Light’ have two different female narrators and both are such well-rounded, inspiring characters. Their distinct voices shine through and portray the story’s world in such different ways, but maintain the intensely detailed worldbuilding and play-by-play actions scenes. Her writing is so immersive.
Is this your first book? If not, what was the first book you ever finished writing? Tell us a little about it.
My first finished manuscript was ‘Phoenix Fire’, a fantasy set in a steampunk-esque world with dragon tamers, mad scientists, and gang wars. Hoping to really polish it after Nano.
What’s the working title of your NaNoWriMo17 project?
The Priestess & The Crow.
Give us an elevator pitch of your project.
Share your favorite line/short paragraph from your book so far.
How did you hear about the Mighty Pens?
Via Sooz’s Twitter
What inspired you to join the Mighty Pens?
With all of the depressing backsteps American politics have been taking recently with education and women’s rights, it was exciting to use writing to benefit a campaign supporting both.
We couldn’t agree more, Harley! And CONGRATS AGAIN! Keep up the amazing work!
