About the Author

Emily Toman came of age in the same Dallas neighborhood where her parents met, and today she lives in the same house where her grandparents grew old together. Although a passion for outdoor adventure has carried her from Texas to California to Patagonia, her family's strong connection to Dallas ensures the city will always be "home." After earning her bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Texas at Arlington, Emily began her writing career at a small-town Central Texas newspaper. She quickly made her way back to Dallas and became the senior editor of the Advocate, a news and lifestyle magazine dedicated to neighborhood issues. No one knows the dynamics of Dallas like these reporters, who always manage to learn something new about their city. Emily now works as a freelance journalist and a Dallas ISD middle school writing teacher. The rest of the time, she's enjoying happy hour at her favorite Tex-Mex restaurant, exploring the woods around the Trinity River or absorbing the burgeoning literary scene.
