Emma Viskic is a critically acclaimed writer, and a concert clarinetist. Not only did her debut novel, Resurrection Bay published through Echo Publishing, win the Ned Kelly Award for Best Debut and 3 Davitt AwardsBest Adult Novel, Best Debut and Readers’ Choice, her shorts winning the Ned Kelly S. D. Harvey Award and the New England Thunderbolt Award, but she has also performed with the likes of Jose Carreras. Her latest novel And Fire Came Down is currently getting ready to win all the awards.

Despite being so sickeningly talented she is well regarded by fellow authors and is an advocate of mentoring and supporting other writers. Emma Viskic used the mentoring services  of Janette Currie, through the WoMentoring Project started by Kerry Hudson, for the final draft of Resurrection Bay. She has described the experience as eye opening.

Emma’s sheer array of skills have led to much speculation about her birth and whether or not she is indeed human. The most popular theory being that she was born on a pirate ship with a tail like a Xenomorph. This is possibly simply confusion over the fact that she was born with a tale about *alien pirates* to tell.

Rumours of her hatred of mangoes, however, are quite true. Not only does she not like mangoes but she refuses to use any words the rhyme with mango. Do not ask her to tango, I repeat, DO NOT ASK HER TO TANGO.
