Emily Cross (which is a pen name) was born in Ireland and is one of four children. As part of her Bachelor of Arts degree, Emily completed one year of English literature and Ancient Civilisation studies before continuing in her main degree subject Psychology. After graduating university with a first class honours degree in psychology, Emily decided to continue her education with a course, which might actually result in a job.
Emily completed her Masters in Business Studies in Human Resource Management with first class honours. She is currently continuing her life as an eternal student by starting a PhD in occupational psychology.
Emily has always had a love for reading books and poetry. In the past 2-3 years, she has been trying to 'seriously' write with the aim of publication as a writer/poet. Alas, 'serious' writing usually = procrastination through blogging
(Seriously weird to write about yourself in third person - even weirder when your using a pen name)
