The Other Side of Summer
Emily Gale was born in London and worked as a children's book editor for several years before going freelance. She is the author of several pre-school books and YA novel Girl Aloud, which has been published in the UK, Germany and the US, where it is called Girl Out Loud. It was shortlisted for a regional UK award and described by Jaclyn Moriarty as powerful, funny, wise and true'. In 2008 Emily and her Australian-born partner moved to Melbourne with their two children. She has since worked on the Authors For Queensland charity auction, which raised over $20,000 for flood victims, and discovered new voices in children's and YA for a literary agent. She is now a children's book buyer and bookseller at Readings. Emily's first book set in Australia is Steal My Sunshine.
