Emily has dreamed of being an author since she was a 5-year-old making crude drawings and stapling the pages together. From 2010 to 2011, she wrote a column titled "The Nerd Corner" under the name J.L. Rivers for the Lima, Ohio newsletter, The Entertainer. In 2020, she began writing video game news and features for SVG, and later transitioned to writing about TV and movies for Looper.
