Author & Illustrator
Emma J. Virján was born under an Aries moon, on a Wednesday, her dad’s bowling night, which explains her passion for shiny, hardwood floors and extra crunchy snack bar French fries. She loves to draw, sing out loud and take walks with her dog, Bella, who is often allowed to sleep on the couch.
Emma is the author-illustrator of the beloved Pig in a Wig Book series – What This Story Needs is a Pig in a Wig, What This Story Needs is a Hush and a Shush, What This Story Needs is a Munch and a Crunch, What This Story Needs is a Bang and a Clang, and What This Story Needs is a Vroom and a Zoom. A new early-reader series, Captain Cat is coming soon, and Emma is also illustrating a picture book of poems by Amy Ludwig VanDerwater.
Emma makes her home in Austin, Texas, where she spends her days writing and drawing.
