I’m a horror fiction author from the UK

Welcome! I'm a UK based horror fiction author. 

I write- you guessed it- horror and speculative fiction, including short stories, horror anthologies and audio fiction.

I'm currently working on material for the wildly popular No Sleep Podcast, paranormal investigation podcast Whispers in the Night, and purveyors of terrifying tales, Shadows at the Door. I seem to have developed a taste recently for podcasting, audio drama, and script writing, and have lots more exciting collaborations and productions coming soon.

Please do explore my website. You'll find links to my published works, thoughts about horror on my blog, general news and announcements including info about the latest podcast episodes released, my paranormal ghost town series 'White Pines', and my next horror anthology 'Four Seasons', due out soon.

Horror fiction author with a paranormal twist

I specialise in the dark and mysterious, with a particular penchant for the paranormal, the parallel, and the phantasmagorical. Which is a fancy way of saying I like to write scary stories about things that go ‘bump’ in the night.

Why? Well, that’s easy. Life can be dreary and colourless sometimes. I like to plumb the depths of my imagination, create worlds in which a person could get truly lost, worlds inhabited by monsters, mayhem and madness.

I am heavily influenced by modern writers like Angela Carter and Stephen King, and the classics, including Shelley, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Lovecraft, Poe and Bram Stoker. I try and include an element of magic realism in my work wherever possible.

I’ve been writing for most of my life, for business and pleasure. I have a degree in English Literature and Drama from Winchester University, and am working towards a Psychology degree with the Open University to help me fully explore the human mind and add a layer of realism to my work.

Coming soon…my Horror Anthology ‘Four Seasons’Four Seasons by Gemma Amor, a horror collection

My first published collection of horror stories is coming out later this year, in winter 2018.  Four Seasons is an introduction to my dark little world, featuring stories you will have heard on No Sleep and Whispers, and others which are exclusive to this anthology. The book is themed around the four seasons of the year, winter, spring, summer and autumn.

I’m also working on illustrations for each story, to make the anthology as immersive and enthralling as possible.
