Emmy Engberts writes Young Adult fiction with diverse characters who won’t apologise for being different and who celebrate their differences.
She is Dutch and has lived in the Netherlands for almost all her life apart from when she studied English and Creative Writing at the University of Chichester in England. This really inspired her to make writing her career and has been working towards that goal ever since.
Emmy currently lives in Groningen with her partner and adorable cats, and if she’s not writing, you can find her playing videogames or working on one of her many creative projects.

This three part contemporary romance series starts with Her Elysium.
A chance meeting in the online game Destruction of Elysium changes the lives of a healer and a tank forever.
The digital worlds of MMORPGs are Alex’ only safe space. Online, she’s the great AlexTheDestroyer, leader of one of the biggest raiding guilds in Destruction of Elysium, a max level tank who can handle any monster and she knows her way around every dungeon. In real life, she’s just Alex, a clumsy girl who’s hyper and too impulsive.
Until she meets a healer who seems to be able to heal more than just her online character. Only, Alex can’t fall for her. The guild desperately needs a new healer, or they’ll lose their top rank.
Can she risk the fate of the guild just to confess to the one girl who really seems to get her?
Fleur is a girly-girl who loves flowers, dresses and being a healer in her favourite MMORPG.
But in this online world, like in real life, she feels like she’s only playing a role, never truly herself.
That is until she meets a tank who seems to match her play style perfectly. She’s curious but also a little wary.
Can she really trust someone she met in a videogame?
When Alex and Fleur meet offline at the yearly guild meeting, everything they ever knew starts to shift…
