Emily Hussey splits her time between work in Melbourne CBD and her home in Adelaide, South Australia. She has lived in several Australian cities, and spent a few years living in Alice Springs, the setting for the Red Centre series.
While there, she also obtained her private pilot’s licence, providing the technical background for Kathy Sullivan’s flying exploits in the Centralian region. Although all of the characters in these stories are fictional, facets are recognisable in many of the people who still live there today.
She enjoys the short story format, and has been published in local anthologies. Those stories are in varied genres, getting to know people and the world as seen through their eyes.
She is authorised as a marriage celebrant by the Australian Attorney-General, and has married couples in many different locations, ranging from private gardens, to beaches to caves or rural locations. Many of her clients remain friends to this day.
