Emilie P. Bush — Writer, Speaker, Journalist, Mentor
Available for appearances at meetings, workshops, book fairs, conventions, writer’s groups or schools.
Emilie P. Bush wears many hats when it comes to writing. She is a Steampunk novelist, a journalist, children’s book author and a mentor to other writers as the Leader of the Gwinnett County Writer’s Guild. She holds a Master’s Degree in Communication from Ohio University, and has worked throughout her career as professional broadcast journalist with many well respected organizations: Ohio University Public Broadcasting, Nationwide Broadcasting, Georgia Public Broadcasting, National Public Radio, and the BBC World Service.
Her first novel, Chenda and the Airship Brofman, was an Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award Semi-finalist in 2010 and her follow up tale, The Gospel According to Verdu, picks up where Chenda left off – high in the skies and wild with adventure. Emilie’s children’s book, Her Majesty’s Explorer: a Steampunk bedtime story, is the world’s first Steampunk picture book, and recently hit #1 on Amazon’s Hot New Releases Bestseller List.
