Bestselling author Emma Wood has always loved a good story!
Her debut picture book Tulip and Doug: Friends for (Almost) Ever made global headlines when New Zealand's then-Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, gifted it to Prince William for his children. Its quirky and heart-warming sequel, Tulip and Sprout: A Growing Friendship, hits the shelves in 2023.
As well as writing children's books, Emma reviews the latest kidlit titles for the Otago Daily Times, and works as a freelance communications specialist.
She lives with her family in Dunedin, New Zealand, and enjoys the creative arts, splashing around at the beach and travelling.
