AUTHOR SPEAKER BADASS
Emmy Laybourne ain't afraid to refer to herself in the third person.
She's a former character actress (Superstar, The In-Laws) who is now writing novels and screenplays, and occasionally does author visits to schools to talk about the life of an writer and story structure. (She sort of has a thing for story structure.)
Emmy also has a newsletter and you probably want it. It comes out once a month and has all sorts of fun stuff in it - giveaways, book reviews, news about what's going on with her books.
Emmy's Ted X talk
...was just posted. Like, yesterday! It's called "Digital Natives Must Be Creatives." In it Emmy discusses her childhood growing up as the daughter of the woman credited with inventing Nickelodeon... and much more!
NEW NYC literary event
Emmy hosts Spine Out and frankly, it's a great show. Past guests include Gayle Forman, David Levithan, Leigh Bardugo, RL Stine and others. Get on the list so you'll be the first to know about tix. It's a small theater and they go fast!
