Gemma has tried many careers on her path to writing, like working for an oil company, teaching, making jewelry, selling diet products, bookkeeping, reading tarot cards, casting astrology charts, and working on a cruise ship, just to name a few.
She always has a story “under construction” and at one time had about fifteen stories going. Recently she finished a few and now gets a thrill from writing ‘The End’ on a manuscript.
Gemma looks for a plot in everything, and some of her ideas come from very unusual sources. An overheard snippet of conversation, a real life newspaper story that can be tweaked in a different direction, or even the experiences of her friends. Yes, they know! Life presents lots of great stories, and there’s a golden nugget in almost everything, with the right dose of imagination.
Her favorite occupation is presenting her characters with torturous choices, putting their backs against the wall, and then helping them find a way out. She loves happily-ever-after endings and believes there is healing in every story that provides one. She has plans to write many books in various genres, for adults and children.
She currently lives in a cozy cottage in Texas with her own unique alpha hero, and a very clever curly-tailed dog.
Gemma is an avid reader. She loves hearing from her readers, and appreciates any suggestions and recommendations you’d like to share. Her greatest reward is hearing that you enjoy the adventures she crafts.
