I'm a horror fiction author, podcaster, artist and voice actor from Bristol, in the U.K.

I write for the wildly popular NoSleep Podcast and various other horror fiction audio dramas. I'm also writing, producing and acting in two shows, 'Calling Darkness', and 'Whisper Ridge', out in 2019. My first anthology of short stories, 'Cruel Works of Nature', was released in 2018, and my next book is the novella 'Collection'.

I'm heavily influenced by classical literature, gothic romance and magic realism. I am most at home inside a dusty, rundown mansion or in front of a fire with a single malt and a dog-eared copy of anything by Angela Carter.

I'm open to collaborations in 2019- find me at @manylittlewords on Twitter and throw ideas at me.

White Pines by Gemma Amor
"This was the first book I've read by Gemma Amor, and it was outstanding. I wasn't sure how I felt about Megs, the main character, at first. But this is definitely a read that draws you with the initial unease and descriptions, and the resulting terro" Read more of this review »

“​Sometimes, all you could do was give in. Sometimes, you just had to let the night win. Lose the battle, win the war,”
Gemma Amor, Dear Laura

“seagulls at her back. Listen for them, and when you hear their cries, walk away as quickly as you can. Find a place, a crowded place, full of people and warmth and laughter. She preys on the weak and the lonely, the desolate and deprived. She feeds on your secrets, your dirty, precious little secrets.”
Gemma Amor, Cruel Works of Nature: 11 Illustrated Horror Novellas

“Because once a secret has grown old, and burrowed itself like a tick under the skin, it is harder to dig out than she could fathom.”
Gemma Amor, Dear Laura
