Gemma James is a USA Today and Amazon bestselling author of a blend of genres, from new adult suspense to dark erotic romance. She loves to explore the darker side of human nature in her fiction, and she’s morbidly curious about anything dark and edgy, from deviant sex to serial killers. Readers have described her stories as being “not for the faint of heart.”

She warns you to heed their words! Her playground isn’t full of rainbows and kittens, though she likes both. She lives in Oregon with her husband and their four children–three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone’s attention.

Q: Do you have plans to write another book in the Epiphany world?

Q: Where can I get signed copies of your books?

A: You can find information on how to purchase signed copies here.

Q: Do you have any advice for aspiring authors?

A: Never give up! You need perseverance in this field. Hone your skills, research the craft of writing, marketing, and the business side of the industry, regardless of whether you plan to publish traditionally or independently. Knowledge is power. Beware of scammers trying to sell “get rich quick” schemes. There are no easy tricks or magic formulas that will sell your books. An attention-grabbing cover and blurb are important, as is editing, but mostly, just do your best to tell a compelling story. And keep writing!

Q: Where do you get your ideas from?

A: This is never an easy question to answer. I get ideas from all kinds of sources, including music, TV, movies, and books. Real life conversations and experiences will also get the muse going.
