Gemma Amor is the Bram Stoker Award nominated author of DEAR LAURA, CRUEL WORKS OF NATURE, TILL THE SCORE IS PAID and WHITE PINES.

She is also a podcaster, illustrator and voice actor, and is based in Bristol, in the U.K.

Many of her stories have been adapted into audio dramas by the wildly popular NoSleep Podcast, and her work also features on shows like Shadows at the Door, Creepy, and The Grey Rooms.

She is the co-creator, writer and voice actor for horror-comedy podcast 'Calling Darkness', which also stars TV and film actress Kate Siegel.

Heavily influenced by classical literature, Gothic romance, tragedy and heroism, she is most at home in front of a fire with a single malt and a dog-eared copy of anything by Angela Carter.

5.0 out of 5 stars A binge-worthy, unputdownable story of one woman's horrible connection to a killer
Reviewed in the United States on August 15, 2019
And this is where I stand up on a soapbox and preach about indie/self-published horror fiction.
I don't know how I came to know about Gemma, I believe she submitted her collection, CRUEL WORKS OF NATURE to me for a review and I was very attracted to the grisly cover so I said, "YES PLEASE" and I also asked if she would send her book to our Night Worms crew of reviewers as well. She obliged.
That collection is AMAZING. I am forever singing its praises. Gemma Amor is so insanely talented. Not only does she write what I want to read but she's also an accomplished illustrator--each story has a companion illustration to go with it. So before I even go into DEAR LAURA, know that her other published work is 100% worthy of retail space in your horror collection, the time it takes to ravage it and the money required to buy it (support indie authors!!) I'm fairly certain all 6 of the other Night Worm reviewers also loved that collection.
Now for this novella, DEAR LAURA.
Holy Hell.
I binged this one in two sittings and the only reason it wasn't in one sitting is that my family was hungry and I had to make them dinner.
Where did Gemma get the idea for the book?? It's so compelling! It's so dangerously terrifying and engaging and realistic!
So our protagonist is best friends with a boy who becomes her boyfriend when they are about 13 or 14 years old.
They are neighbors, they ride the school bus together and their parents are friends.
One day, Bobby gets into a van with a strange man and never comes back.
The rest of this story is for YOU to discover for yourself.
I devoured this little, dark, twisted book.
I ate up the words like a starving thief in the night raiding the fridge.
I could read Gemma's words forever and ever and evermore. I can't wait for a full novel!! Give me a full novel GEMMA!!
Hahaha if you can't tell, I loved this story. It's gripping, it's haunting, it's horribly creepy and unsettling and filled with anxiety and tension and an overwhelming compulsive need to know what will happen. I dare you to not finish this in one sitting.
