Emily C. A. Snyder has been inventing stories since she was old enough to babble, and writing them down since she was old enough to dictate. A prolific writer, Snyder is the author of The Twelve Kingdoms series from Arx Publishing, LLC which includes "Niamh and the Hermit" and "Charming the Moon," as well as "Nachtsturm Castle: A Gothic Austen Novel" from Girlebooks.com, a pastiche and sequel to "Northanger Abbey."
She has written over 40 plays, operas, ballets, musicals, pageants, masques, etc., four of which have been published from Playscripts.com: "Math for Actors," "Charming Princes," "Wallace's Will" and "The French Butler." Her work has been performed throughout the United States, and internationally as well - from Dublin, Ireland to Christchurch, New Zealand.
Her original five-act iambic pentameter play, "Cupid and Psyche" debuted in Boston in 2009, and was a semi-finalist in the Princess Grace Awards that same year. On Valentine's Day 2014, it will be revived for a limited Off-Broadway run through her production company, Turn to Flesh Productions.

Snyder holds an MA in Theatre Education from Emerson College, Boston, MA and a BA in Literature and Drama from Franciscan University of Steubenville, OH. She studied screenwriting in Hollywood, CA with the ActOne program, and studied verse drama with the Theatre-in-England/Shakespeare School in London and Stratford-upon-Avon, England, under the direction of Vivien Heilbron and Bernard Lloyd. She is a member of the Dramatists Guild, and currently lives in New York City.
When not writing, Emily can most often be seen teaching or directing Shakespeare. And when not doing that, chances are she's driving aimlessly in her car, singing at the top of her lungs. For more information, please visit her website http://www.emilycasnyder.com
