About Emma Bowler

Emma is one of very few people in the world with Kniest Syndrome: "this means I'm 4ft tall and don't have the best mobility". 1 in every 200.000 people have it apparently. She spent 10 years making television at the BBC but after having her son, Archie, in 2004, she became a freelance writer. She has since had a second son, Ben, in 2006. You can find Emma's blog at
