emily_cleaverI am a freelance writer who specialises in writing about history, folklore, literature and the arts. Over the course of my career I have, among other things, arranged the delivery of live body lice to a cathedral by motorcycle courier, interviewed Betty Boothroyd about her underwear and refereed London’s most violent book sale. These days I write for publications such as the Smithsonian Magazine, Atlas Obscura, Cosmo and the Guardian Books Blog. I co-authored the non-fiction book More To Life Than Shoes, published by Hay House Ltd. in 2011.

My short stories have been published in the London Lies anthology from Arachne Press, Paraxis, .Cent, The Mechanics’ Institute Review, One Eye Grey, and Smoke magazines, performed to audiences at Liars League, Stand Up Tragedy, WritLOUD, Tales of the Decongested and Spark London and broadcasted on Resonance FM and Pagan Radio.
