About the book
The Disorganisation of Celia Stone is an engaging snapshot of the contemporary experience that has become all too familiar for many young women. It follows Celia Stone, the ultimate hyper-organised, journal-obsessed thirty-something with a life that is perfectly planned out and running like clockwork. But when her husband suggests it’s time to start a family, Celia begins to question whether a new addition might just throw everything she’s worked so hard to achieve off course. Follow Celia’s diary entries on a year-long journey of self-discovery as she navigates the ups and downs of trying to have it all.
After five years in bookselling, Emma retrained as a journalist and has been reporting since 2011: first for community papers, then as a statewide digital journalist for WAtoday. Her work also regularly appears in sister publications the Age and the Sydney Morning Herald. Her debut novel, The Last Bookshop, was shortlisted for the inaugural Fogarty Literary Award in 2019.
