Gayle Schliemann


By day, Gayle is a quirky marketing manager for a major Swiss sewing machine company. By night she is an aspiring acrobat. Weekends often find her dressing up in costumes pretending that she is dancing with the Goblin King.

Originally from Arlington, Virginia, Gayle graduated with a BFA in Theatre Performance from Virginia Commonwealth University in 1995. Her first novel, Stopping Inertia set the tone for her subsequent writings in the Inertia Chronicles. She never meant to have anyone actually read her stuff, see it or touch it. Writing was Gayle's home remedy for insomnia and dealing with being a metropolitan transplant who quickly had to adapt to small town living after moving from Richmond, Virginia to Montpelier, Vermont.

Having moved once more to the friendly mid-west, Gayle has easily adapted to life in Chicagoland and is focusing on finishing her installments revolving around Inertia Hanks, the redheaded, thirty year old virgin.

Contact her on social media, she likes that.
