Em has worked in the film & television industry as a producer/director for over 20 years. Her writing career has included a stage musical Simply The Best with Tina Turner, and a bitter sweet comedy screenplay Last Chance Saloon in production. BEFORE YOU WERE MINE is her first novel.
1976: In small-town Mississippi, 14 year old Eli goes into labour. Eli’s mother arrives a few hours later to take the baby from her arms and sign the adoption papers. Shamed into submission, little changes in Eli’s life for over 30 years. Then one day, on her weekly shop, Eli sees her daughter, and everything changes. While her husband Tommy must grow to accept his own part in the events of her early life, he can only try to save her before her obsession with a young woman ruins them both.
