My name is Emily.
Here I am in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I’m from.
Here I am in Boston, where I live and work.
I attended Bryn Mawr College and majored in English while minoring in film studies. My work had a concentration in creative writing, and I completed a lot of coursework in Judeo-Christianity.
I wrote my undergraduate thesis on Judeo-Christian monsters, serial killers and works like Paradise Lost.
My first favorite monster was Moishe from
Maurice Sendak’s “Where the Wild Things Are”.
My favorite monster now is John Gardner’s “Grendel.”
Let me know who your favorite monsters are and why:
