Dr. Emma Wood

Junior Agent

Based in the UK, Emma, holds a PhD in environmental physiology and a black belt in karate.

She is an editor, technical writer, and part of the Scribophile community. She is a voracious reader, both for fun and analytically, and enjoys pulling books apart to identify what works and what doesn’t in both Children’s and Adult genres. She loves novelty and quirkiness in all things, cracking characters, and spectacular stories. She is primarily drawn to excellent characterization and a strong voice.

Emma has several scientific papers published in peer reviewed journals, in addition to her thesis, and is a member of the SCBWI U.K.
