Emmell Sorensen is a seasoned walker who in 2017 travelled eight
hundred kilometres across Spain to complete a pilgrimage. Emmell
planned and trained for five years to prepare for this undertaking,
trekking many varied paths in contrasting weather conditions.
Emmell is a mother, writer, musician, music therapist, teacher and pastoral carer who has spent her life walking a metaphorical journey with people. Working in hospitals, special education schools and out in the community,
Emmell has accompanied people during the most challenging and celebratory times of their lives. It is this interest in people and self that originally inspired the idea of walking a pilgrimage, then writing a memoir.
Emmell is a Melbourne based writer living with her husband, Camino Boy. They have four adult children together.
"A glorious tale of human growth and endurance that marks a new voice in Australian writing as Emmell navigates through emotional vulnerabilities and physical demands with professional prose and true passion for her experiences and story to be shared with us...a triumph." Natalie, Indiebook reviewer.
