Emilee Prado was raised in the Denver metro area and currently resides in Tucson, Arizona.

She holds an MSc in Creative Writing, a BA in Film Studies, and an ESL teaching certification. Emerging from a blue-collar background, she funded her studies through various fields of work. She has held jobs as a house renovator and landscaper, department store custodian, shipping dock worker, housekeeper, car wash attendant, and caterer.

As an undergraduate at the University of Colorado Boulder, she worked as a librarian and digital archivist, and later, a research assistant in cognitive neuroscience.

In the year before pursuing her masters at the University of Edinburgh, she was a tutor in adult literacy and freelance editor. From 2015-2020, she taught ESL in Lopburi, Thailand and Santa Cruz do Sul, Brazil. After the pandemic lockdowns, she returned to the US and joined the Arizona Department of Health to collect data on Covid-19.

This dedication to myriad experiences has fueled and funded her writing and impelled eclectic subject matter in her fiction.
