Nationally bestselling author and winner of the prestigious RITA Award, Emily McKay got her start writing romance novels. After ten years of writing books with babies and billionaires, Emily decided to try her hand at something different—Young Adult horror. Hey, she just really missed reading about scary vampires. Her RITA-winning book, The Farm, launches a trilogy set in a terrifying postapocalyptic world where teens are farmed as food and genetically mutated monsters roam the country.
When she’s not devising new ways to kill vampires, Emily lives in the hill country with her husband, the Geek, her two great kids, two cats and two dogs. In her spare time, she raises organic veggies and chickens and tries to hide the fact that she’s secretly prepping for the apocalypse.
