Top 5 Things I like to do when I am not writing


I’m don’t like sport, but I love to take long walks. I can spend hours in the nearby forest. Also my husband and I plan trips for our days off our fulltime job. We enjoy visiting watchtowers, castles, parks and other places related with history and/or nature.


I can read pretty much any genre, but my favourite are fantasy, bonus points for dragons appearing in the story, and M/M romance. That is also why I write in these genres. I read quite a lot of nonfiction books, too. Few days ago I finished reading a book about the symbolism and mythology of dragons around the globe. A Bosnian guy named Slavko Kroča who lived in Czechia wrote it. Now I am half through The Key of Beliseth by Lou Hoffmann. In the same time I read The Waking Fire by Anthony Ryan, because I always tend to jump between two books of different genres (sometimes more).


I just love food. I should probably not admit it, but I have suffered from overeating since I entered primary school. Things changed a lot and I stopped eating out of stress, and try to add more vegetable to my meals, but I still consume more food than I am supposed to.


Let’s get back to the walking. What if it’s hard raining or the temperature dropped way too low? I put the headphones in my ears and walk in the kitchen. I’m not making this up, I actually walk in a cirkle. Sure it sounds crazy, but this is when my mind goes really crazy. As soon as I hit the play button and start walking, worlds and plot bunnies start popping up in my mind. I also do this whenever I have a writing block to sort my thoughts out or if I have half an hour before I have to go to work and have nothing else to do.

Listening to music

Speaking of which, music became so important part of my life, I like listening to it no matter what am I doing. Is it my turn to cook the dinner? Wait, let me fish out the headphones. The only time I prefer silence is when reading and sometimes writing – actually it is a tie between music and no music when I sit down to put some words down.

Can love erase a lifetime of fear and bitterness? Kuba flees the oppressive influence of his strict Catholic family as soon as he graduates high school. In the big city of Pilsen, Czech Republic, he can get a fresh start. Although he is fairly content sharing a flat with his coworker and filling it with books, he knows he’s destined to be alone unless he can come out of the closet. But he just isn’t ready to bare his soul to the world.

When he meets his roommate’s friend Emil, he begins to reconsider. Is a chance at romance with the gorgeous man—and fellow bibliophile— incentive enough for Kuba to face his demons?

World of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the globe.

About the Author: Emory Schneider was born in Děčín, the Czech Republic, as the fourth of five children and later moved to the western part of the country to find a job. They ended up working as a brazer in Pilsen—yes, the home of the beer. Emory spent a lot of their childhood discussing possible scenarios for cartoon and manga series they watched with their brother and pretending they were a knight or a spy. Their love of books and stories in general motivated them to learn English, although they had nearly failed the subject for two years.

During their teenage years, they started to make up M/M romance stories, but it took them several years to put any of them on paper. When not working or writing, Emory tries to fight their laziness and burn some calories they probably gained from staring at chocolate bars at the shopping mall or drinking some of the Coke they bought for their husband.
