Emily Locker

Emily Locker spent most of fourth grade persuading her friends to reenact scenes from Sweet Valley High. She was raised in Washington, D.C., by two psychotherapists, who often caught her reading well past midnight and who inspired her early interest in the human psyche and relationship dynamics. 

Emily moved to New York City after graduating from the University of Rochester to complete a Social Work graduate program at New York University. Her first job was at The World Trade Center Program where she provided individual and group psychotherapy to first responders. She recently returned to Washington where she lives with her husband and two young sons. When Emily is not writing or chasing after her “lively” boys, she works as a therapist in private practice. This is her first novel.
