Emmie Mears is an author, actor, and person of fannish pursuits. They speak four languages and hold a degree in history, which means they can tell you their anteater is sick in German and rattle off Polish tongue twisters. Emmie is proudly queer, agender, and is a knight of the singular they. Emmie is the author of six adult novels and is open to bribery in the form of sushi, bubble tea, and just about any variation of cheese on carbs.
They spend most of their time opening wormholes and studying fantastical wildlife.
Emmie may or may not secretly be a car.
They are represented by the indomitable Sara Megibow of kt literary. If you want to support Emmie's writing life directly, you can buy the universes they make through the Books page or join their community on Patreon, where their Patrons (the Fabulous and Beloved) gain access to exclusive stories, handmade whatsits, and tomfoolery.
Emmie is accepting requests for appearances for 2016 and beyond. In 2013-2015, they appeared on panels at DC/MD area conventions and is always happy to speak on anything SFF-related.
2016 Appearances (subject to change):
Balticon: Baltimore, MD, May 2016
Shore Leave: Hunt Valley, MD, July 2016
Baltimore Book Fest: Baltimore, MD, September 23-25 2016
Capclave: Gaithersburg, MD, October 2016
World Fantasy Con: Columbus, OH, October 2016
*Most of these Emmie will be attending just for the funsies and general awesomeness. There may be panels or lectures (or -- let's go crazy -- both!) at one or some of these, which will be updated accordingly as plans progress.
Emmie is in the process of solidifying 2016-2017 convention and conference plans. Check back for announcements!
