Editor Emily Jones 

Half fairy-tale princess, half farm hick, news editor Emily Jones leads the romanticized life that every teenage girl dreams of.  Born the only child of the king and queen of Scunthorpe, Emily ran away at the age of seven in hopes of living a more ‘normal’ life. Arriving in Yorkshire, the young runaway consulted many citizens on the busy streets of Leeds, seeking the plainest, quietest, most non-eventful land in all of the U.K.

The land she heard to be all of these wonderful things and more was a faraway, mystical, magical land called northern Rawdon. Settling down at the mature age of thirteen, Emily often found herself skipping in the rain and frolicking in the vast industrial wastelands, her long Scunthorpian dress swishing around her bare ankles.  Whether it’s tending to her tropical fruit flies, or taking care of her monkeys and the random neighbours kids, Emily’s motherly heart and general jovial joyfulness gets her through each day.  

Now at age seventeen, she writes for the Concrete Times, never actually attending school, but sending all of her articles via a rainbow hare (long boring story)… and although she loves to read and write, her true love is for riding her rusty red bike, her long dress train, flapping in the wind.
