Hi, I’m Emily Brooks. I write hopeful fantasy, poetry, and personal essays. See my publications here.

I write two blogs. Little Did She Know is a personal blog where I reflect on faith, courage, and mental health. For book and media reviews and writing inspiration, see my other blog, Words of Worlds.

I’m so glad you’re here!
