About Emma

Emma Capell is a dreamer, a romantic and an adventurer.

She was born in London and emigrated to Sydney, Australia at the age of twenty-one for the beach lifestyle. Marriage followed, and she and her husband lived in outback Queensland, Scotland, Norway, Egypt and France over the next eight years before returning to Sydney.

Divorce six years later left Emma a single mum of three children, aged seven, nine and eleven, having to return to the workforce after fifteen years. She cobbled together a living for eleven years at various entry level jobs until cancer was diagnosed aged fifty. A number of life-changing disappointments then piled on top before she could even get treatment, causing her to re-examine her dreams and reinvent her life.
