Short biography
Emily Brontë was born in Yorkshire, England, one of the six children of Patrick Brontë, a clergyman, and his wife Maria Branwell. She and her siblings wrote fantastical stories together, creating imaginary worlds filled with romantic and military adventures.

At age 20, Emily worked briefly as a teacher before returning home to the parsonage at Haworth, where she continued to write poetry and fiction as well as doing much of the housework. In 1846, with her sisters Charlotte and Anne, under the pseudonym "Ellis Bell," she jointly published a volume of poems entitled Poems by Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell. In 1847, she published her only novel, Wuthering Heights. She died the following year at age 30 of tuberculosis, a disease that plagued her family.
