M.J. Buckman (Em), was born into privilege, but didn’t realize it. She spent her young years in a mediocre town in the South-East of England, living a mediocre life, before going to study in the bright lights of London. She yearned for a life less ordinary and found it with her gay friends.
She lived in London for thirty years, bringing up two sons and working in the not-for-profit sector.
Em has now retired to the south coast, where she lives with her unbelievably tolerant husband, her anxious as anything little dog and her cool as anything big cat.
