Emily Dalton



Emily was born on Shanute Air Force Base in Illinois and has four brothers. As an Air Force brat, she traveled around the United States quite a bit as a child, living mostly in Illinois, South Carolina, and Mississippi.

Her favorite childhood memories, though, center on her family's visits to her grandparents' house in Kentucky. Catching tadpoles from the creek by the house during the day; catching fireflies at night; taking baths in a big tin tub; listening to the train whistles at night as she snuggled into her featherbed; eating her grandmother's fried chicken and cherry pie; and listening to her grandfather tell tales of his career as a tap dancer in a traveling show filled her early life with a deep sense of family and an appreciation for simple pleasures.
