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 am sometimes known (by those who approve of wizards) as The Wizard of Eutopia.

For twelve years I've been building, also on the main road (well, a little to one side of it), a sculptured ferrocement 'folly' called Café Eutopia.
What is Eutopia and why should you care? Well, it's an organic café, a temple to Love Beauty Truth and Freedom, and a bookshop - not necessarily in that order. See photos.

Five years ago, Lynn Kelling spontaneously started writing and hasn’t stopped since. It all started with the desire to take a closer look at behaviors and ideas lurking at the fringes of life – basically anything that people may hesitate to speak of in mixed company, but everyone wonders about anyway. She is drawn to that which some may consider to be taboo – the darker and wilder the better – in order to expose the humanity within it. Our most telling moments are conveyed through intimacy and that which makes us feel vulnerable, powerful, or both, and so what could be more intriguing? Lynn is an artist and lover of any form of creative self-expression that comes from a place of honesty and emotion, whe ... read more

G. C. Huxley
G. C. Huxley loves philosophy and adventure.
Ever read philosophy essays? Whilst some of the ideas may be exciting, some can be a sterile read. Philosophy is very important for comprehending our connection with reality but we are still human, and the best medium for reaching through to our hearts is art.
That’s where the adventure fiction comes in. Teenage adventure especially can be a revelation in new experiences, just like new ideas in philosophy, and is accessible to all ages of thinkers.
There aren't many philosophy-fiction books out there though. This drives G. C. Huxley to write his own, carving adventures out of philosophy he is passionate about.
