EMILY SERIES

The Emily series is now out of print, so books are hard to find. You may have luck finding some at libraries, or used bookstores.

LIFE, LOVE, AND THE PURSUIT OF HOTTIES
The Fifth Book in the Emily Series

Reasons why my life sucks right now

1. The end of high school. You’d think that’s good, right? Remember that episode of Buffy where the demon snake eats everyone at her graduation? That would be an improvement over mine.
2. Dorm life. Thumbs way up on moving away from home, but down, down, down on the Geek Dorm where I’ll spend the next four years. It’s going to take forever to hipify all those science and techno geeks.
3. Dru’s wedding. She may be one of my best friends, but if she thinks I’m going to wear a pink and yellow plaid bridesmaid’s dress, she’s completely wacked out of her gourd.
4. Romantic graduation present cruise…without the nummiest boyfriend on the face of the earth? One word: Waaaaaaaaah!

TAMING OF THE DRU
The Fourth Book in the Emily Series

With plans to snare Fang as her boyfriend at last, and her best friend Dru visiting for a short vacation, Emily envisions her last month in England to be filled with shopping, clubbing, and fun with a capital F. But when Fang comes home from a trip to New Zealand with a girlfriend in tow, her whole life seems to go bad: her dream job at a museum turns into a nightmare, and even the epic reenactment of the Helm’s Deep battle scene from the film The Two Towers (complete with swords, fake blood, and water balloons) goes awry.

Not even seances to contact the spirit she’s convinced haunts her underwear drawer can cheer her up as she readies herself to face the bittersweet move back to Seattle. Home doesn’t seem to have the same attraction as she thought it would, and it doesn’t take long before Emily realizes just what it’s going to mean to leave England…and Fang.

WHAT’S FRENCH FOR “EW”?
The Third Book in the Emily Series

Spring break arrives, and that means it’s time for Emily to brush up on her sadly lacking French language skills. Emily, however, has much more important plans for her time–she is determined to keep the interest of her boyfriend Devon, and what better place to storm his Bastille than Paris?

Unfortunately her attempts to conquer strange French cuisine, Devon–and oh, yes, there’s that little thing about learning the language–end up in …well, let’s just call it The French Revolution II and leave it at that.

THEY WEAR WHAT UNDER THEIR KILTS?
The Second Book in the Emily Series

Sixteen-year-old Emily spends her month of work experience on a Scottish sheep farm, complete with wild sheep (who seem determined to do her in), her best friend Holly (who challenges her to a contest to see who can snog the local hottie first), and Ruaraidh the shepherd, AKA the Scottish God of Love who just happens to have eleven fingers.

Kilt-watching, disasterous castle tours, graffiti spraypainted sheep, and tanning lotions gone horribly awry–it’s just another month in the life of Emily.
