At age 18 Emma discovered Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and that set her on a course that has led her to be one of the leading women writers in British fantasy and comics.
Both independently and with frequent writing collaborator Gordon Rennie, she has written tales of Doctor Who, Judge Dredd (the first woman to do so), Judge Anderson, Catwoman, Wonder Woman and her own creations.
In 2013, after the success of Survival Geeks, Emma became the first woman to write Judge Dredd for 2000AD, co-authoring again with Rennie a tale called “Suicide Watch”. The story also introduced Mega-City 1’s first ever Muslim judge, Psi-Judge Hamida, who Emma co-created.
Two years later in the pages of the Judge Dredd Megazine she became the first woman to write Judge Anderson’s strip, a character largely written by Alan Grant for most of her history. This was a solo writing gig close to Emma’s heart as she has long admired the independence, self-sufficiency and toughness of Cassandra Anderson.
In 2016, DC Comics have just published her first story for them. 'Catwoman / Wonder Woman: The Amazonian Job', with art by the super talented Minkyu Jung (who works on the current Batgirl series).
Emma’s also working on a sequel to the 2015 graphic novel Robbie Burns: Witch Hunter and everyone at ECC is looking forward to hearing more about “Warlocks and witches in a dance”!
