Emma was born and grew up in Newcastle upon Tyne. After graduating from the University of St. Andrews with an MA in English Language and Literature, she embarked on a career as a Technical Author: firstly in Edinburgh and now in London. Away from her day job, she's developed an encyclopaedic knowledge of real-life murder cases and of notorious historical figures, as well as a fascination with unorthodox women - past, present and fictional. In her writing, she likes to poke around the darker reaches of the human mind, and to explore what people are capable of under extreme circumstances. Little Deaths is her first novel.
A phenomenal achievement. Little Deaths is one of those so-very-rare accomplishments: a lightning fast, heart-pounding, psychologically resonant crime novel that effortlessly transcends genre. If you believed that literary fiction can't be a one-sitting read, think again -- Jefferey Deaver Little Deaths is a rarity: a period piece and police procedural that is wrenching and real and deeply moving. I fell fast and hard under the spell of this this lush, moody, film noir of a novel -- Chris Bohjalian, author of The Guest Room Utterly atmospheric and with style to burn, Emma Flint's Little Deaths is a novel that troubles and transfixes from its simmering first pages all the way to its searing final words -- Megan Abbott, author of You Will Know Me
