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.

Till the Score is Paid by Gemma Amor
"Excellent collection. Each story seemed to get better and better as I moved along.
Favorites included I am a Ghost, Heart of Stone, Birthday Cake, and the Strangler.
The Strangler had a unique storytelling voice that was awkward for me at first, but..." Read more of this review »

"

Unsurprisingly, Gemma Amor has done it again and has completely amazed me with how much terror and emotion she can fit into such short, tidy little stories! I first was introduced to Gemma's work through The NoSleep Podcast, and thoroughly enjoy..." Read more of this review »
