A little about me…

Steve Emmett FRSA…

is a member of Humanists UK, worked for a while as their Ceremonies Training Coordinator, and is a Humanists UK Celebrant providing funeral and wedding ceremonies across Yorkshire and The Humber.

He does not work for, nor is he affiliated with, any funeral director. His total commitment and loyalty is to you – the family for whom he performs the ceremony.

Steve studied at the Architectural Association in London where he once witnessed Dame Zaha Hadid fall through a canvas chair (admittedly she was just plain Ms Hadid then). He spent most of his professional life selling Italian country homes to northern Europeans and Americans, and spent many years living in London and Italy.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a member of the Society of Authors, and has occasionally reviewed for the New York Journal of Books. You may have come across him at the odd book festival or book signing – he is always open to offers. Steve grew up on Hammer Horror films, Dennis Wheatley and MR James stories, so not surprising that his main aim when writing fiction is to put the frighteners up his readers. When not scaring people he likes to make them smile.

He likes to read, watch films, go to the theatre, go to concerts, the opera and to travel. He has been known to frequent good restaurants and drink fine wine. There isn’t much going on in the world that doesn’t interest him and on which he hasn’t an opinion.

Steve says: “Discover my work, likes/dislikes, thoughts and foibles, friends, and glimpses of my world. Welcome to my website.”
