Emily Benet

Emily Benet

Emily was born in London to a Welsh mother and Spanish father, but spent her teenage years in Barcelona.

Her debut book Shop Girl Diaries began as a blog about working in her Mum’s eccentric chandelier shop. It won the CompletelyNovel Author Blog Awards at the London Book Fair and inspired her script for Shop Girl Blog, which was shown at the London Short Film Festival.

Her second book, a romantic comedy called The Temp, also began its life online, as a serialised novel on Wattpad and racked up two million hits under its original title Spray Painted Bananas.

Emily has contributed articles on social media to guidebooks and magazines including  Publishing Talk, Blogging for Writers, Writers and Artists and Mslexia. She also runs Get Blogging Workshops.

She now lives in Mallorca with her husband. If she’s not writing or thinking about writing, it’s probably because she’s up a mountain, in the sea or fast asleep.
