Emily Uecker

Oh dear. Me? Really? Well fine, if you’re sure you’re interested: I’m Emily Uecker, typical older Emily Ueckersister, yet-to-be-published author, and champion procrastinator. My main methods for avoiding working on my novel include reading, binge-watching Netflix, and yoga. I’m also a fair-weather runner who tries to eat healthy, but let’s face it, potatoes are the food of the Gods. So is bread. And wine.

Clearly, I’m a fan of lists.

You can find some of my work in McSweeney’s.
