Emily Norton grew up in the mountains of Virginia, watching her mom write stories and listening as her dad read stories and books to her every day. Their family moved every few years, so the only constant in her life was the joy found in storytelling.
She developed a passion for writing in high school, through creative writing courses and studying history and current events in the cities she where she lived. Having graduated from college with a degree in business marketing and minor in writing, she is marketing director at CrossLife Church in Oveido. Emily strives to bring people good news and encourage her community with stories that will make a difference in this world.
