ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Emma Hannigan is from Bray, Co Wicklow in Ireland. She is married with two children.
Writing became her passion and life line in 2006, quite by mistake. Having discovered she carries the cancer gene BRCA 1, Emma chose to have a double mastectomy and her ovaries removed.
Alas, she developed cancer a year after her radical surgery. Determined to battle and become a true cancer vixen, Emma fought the good fight! To date Emma had beaten cancer a remarkable 8 times!
'I like to keep score,' she jokes. 'So far it's cancer 0 - Emma 8
Emma's fight with cancer is detailed in her memoir 'Talk to the Headscarf.' Emma is a glass-half-full type of person and cancer hasn't changed that.
'I wrote 'Talk to the Headscarf' to show people that cancer doesn't always win. When I was diagnosed at first, I wanted an ordinary person to tell me I could live through this awful disease. This isn't a misery memoir. It's not there to scare people. It's all the things you ever wanted to know about cancer, but were afraid to ask! I laughed out loud writing parts of this book and I hope readers will too.'
Emma's writing career began in the chemotherapy unit.
'I wrote because I was bored. But most of all I needed an out let at the time. I discovered I adore creating characters and telling stories. I feel truly blessed to have found this wonderful and exciting new career.'
Emma has written six novels and is determined to keep adding to her list.
