Emily is a Washington DC native now living in the suburbs of Chicago. A lawyer by training, she works part-time teaching writing at a local law school and spends most of her time taking care of her family and volunteering in her community.
Emily’s tastes range from the serious to the frivolous. She subscribes to US Weekly and The New Yorker. She follows politics, theater, movies, television, fashion and pop culture. That doesn’t mean she actually goes to the theater or dresses fashionably, of course. Emily loves to cook more and she recently became an avid canner; but she doesn't garden and she barely decorates. You can read Emily’s thoughts on all these topics and whatever else comes to mind at her personal blog
