Dark Roast

Eat at Joe's, but come here for the coffee.

Emma Bull
Thinking you know someone because you read what they write on the Internet is like saying you know Mike Wallace because you've watched all the old episodes of 60 Minutes.

I let other people play with my imaginary friends.

Coffee Em is the cowgirl secret identity of Emma Bull. She writes fantasy and science fiction, and lives in a curious little house in Minneapolis with:
1. Her writer husband, Will Shetterly
2. A black cat who's heavier than he looks and who likes to drink from the faucet (Update: RIP, buddy. 9/9/2015)
3. A white-with-orange-blotches cat with a large vocabulary and no concept of indoor voice.

Her list of published works is available here.

She's the executive producer of Shadow Unit, a contemporary science fiction TV series that doesn't exist. Well, not on TV, anyway. Read the episodes: www.shadowunit.org.

Is your cat plotting to kill you?
