Emily Ackerman trained and worked as a doctor before illness put an end to her professional career. Her first book, A Time to Care, was published by IVP.
Emily lives in Scotland with her husband. She likes people–watching, playing with fabric, playing with words and growing green things. Emily has two children and a new grandson, about whom she is happy to boast at the slightest provocation. After twenty three years of illness and disability caused by M.E., Emily is enjoying an unexpected recovery.
