Using the pen name "Embee," Stegner self-published her first novel, Tess Embers, as an 8th grader. Her second novel, When Winters Cross, was released about a year later. In the summer of 2015, The Bug Zapper was released, a result of NaNoWriMo. Stegner has been interviewed by local TV stations, newspapers, and radio shows. She has also hosted book signings, given presentations to libraries and classrooms, and participated on a teen innovations panel.
In addition to fiction novels, she has been hired to write articles for publications including VOYA and HelloGiggles.
Stegner's third book, The Bug Zapper, was written in a month, thanks to NaNoWriMo! Visit NaNoWriMo.org for more information on the program, and feel free to add "EmbeeTree" as a buddy. :)
