Ian Emberson was born at Hove in Sussex in 1936, and is proud to have been christened by the poet Andrew Young. After moving around quite a bit, he now lives with his wife Catherine in the small town of Todmorden - just within the Yorkshire boundary, despite the postal address.He was indeed very much involved with the Brontë Society and he was a frequent contributor to Brontë Studies(1) (and its predecessor, Brontë Society Transactions). His last contribution can be found in the latest issue: Passages in the Life of Which Individual?, Brontë Studies, Volume 38, Number 3, September 2013 , pp. 240-244(5).
For many years he was Music Librarian at Huddersfield, but has now retired in order to concentrate on writing and art. He also enjoys walking and swimming and is a life-member of the Gaskell and Brontë Societies. His daughter Beth lives in France.
