A Real Writer


Remember back in high school, when you got your first home computer?

Remember how awesome it was that grandma got you one for college, and it was so neat that you lugged around the heavy CPU and giant monitor and all the cords because it was worth it?

Remember how you finally got fed up with that, bought your first laptop, and it seemed like a genius idea not to have to lug around the cords and monitor and CPU, with everything instead packed into a neat little package of itself?

Remember when you realized that package still weighed as much as a horse, and that convenience was worth buying the new lightweight models that “only” weighed about ten pounds?

And then came the day when your publisher said laptops were old school, and so they sent you a one pound iPad to capture every word evoked by your trip to the middle east.

And it is pink!

With whole libraries of ancient texts, volumes of every book I can imagine, all the music I want, and the best in word processing software… Not to mention games to play with my mom and the social stuff to keep up with my nieces and nephews… All in one device.

Let the adventures begin!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper. This is not an official Web site of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
