Gemma Newey


My name is Gemma Newey, and I am a writer.

Yes, I originally went under the assumed name Faye Tempest Cross, but I felt that it wasn't me any more and I wanted to stop hiding behind it. I love to write and publishing my work has been a thrill, I hope to publish a lot more and I hope everyone continues to read my work, even though I have changed my name.

I live and work in the United Kingdom, and I love it here .... even with the constant rain. Hey it can't rain all the time ... right?! I'm married to a wonderful man, and I live with him, my 3 cats, 1 dog and 2 chickens - not a farm just yet. It was my husbands push, as well as some annoying pushing from friends, that finally made me publish my works - and I'm so glad that I listened to them!

I love anything goth, steampunk and cyberpunk ... I'm a goth myself, with a steampunk twist. I love goggles ... But what can I saw, I can't help it. I think that's where my love and inspiration of vampires came from!

I hope you all like my work, and will continue to be a follower!

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an indie author?
It so difficult to find a publisher or agent these days, as the author scene is so saturated, that I thought self publishing was a good start to show how well my novels sell and at the same time look for a publisher. But I love writing so much, I knew I wanted to share my stories with others as soon as the book was ready!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Knowing that when I've finished writing my novels, I get to share them with others to enjoy reading.
