Emma Alice Johnson is a nice, normal lady who writes not-so-nice, abnormal fiction.
But that’s not the whole story.
She has had her face peeled off no less than three times – all before reaching the third grade. She has been chased through the back alleys of Beijing by a Chinese hooker and a gang of knife-wielding thugs. She’s laughed off muggings in the shadows of Amsterdam. She’s fought robot monsters beneath the streets of Berlin and dined on cheese with the natives on top of the Andes. She’s smashed boards in grimy basements while accompanied by notorious punk bands, been in Fourth of July street fights and eaten sandwiches in New York’s sleaziest sex clubs.
She feels sexiest when doing deadlifts. She eats more pie than she should. She owns more books than dresses. She cries when watching cartoons.
She is a two time Wonderland Book Award-winner. Over the last 20 years, her fiction has appeared in The Dark, Dark Discoveries, Year’s Best Hardcore Horror and many other publications. It has garnered acclaim from Publisher’s Weekly, Hellnotes, Horror News and more. She has created a wide variety of zines, mostly about punk rock and monsters. She is a regular contributor to long-running DIY punk zine Razorcake.
She was born in Wisconsin and lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
To write beautiful, gross, honest, violent, fun and hopeful stories. To spotlight and be true to women, trans and queer characters who are nice and not so nice. To surprise with fresh and wild ideas and images. To put my heart into every word.
