Gemma Paul, author and illustrator of The Little Bat That Could & The Mummy Walks at Midnight

HeadshotGemma is fairly new to writing but it has been a long-held passion since she was a child. After several years of working in business, she left to pursue her long-held dreams of writing and making movies. After writing and directing her first short in 2018, she quickly gained the bug and hasn’t stopped since. That first short went on to win multiple awards in the USA and was quickly followed by a second short which went on to do even better than the first. Since then Gemma has been focusing on her writing and illustrating as she finds she prefers the quiet life at home with her dogs and her computer. As a monster and horror fan she is finding a way to bring her quirky imagination to all ages. Gemma lives in sunny Dorset near the sandy beaches with her two rescue dogs, Jimmy the ex racing greyhound and Harley a just out of puppydom whippet. When not writing, illustrating or walking the dogs, she’s usually found tending to her vegetable patch or sunbathing in her garden hammock.

Antoinette Corvo, author of Dirges in the Dark & The Ivory Tower

Antoinette Corvo is a writer from Brooklyn, New York. Dirges was first written in 1999, the first book I wrote. With time I grew it up and it became Dirges in the Dark that you see today. I was an opera singer and was taught at the Brooklyn Academy of music but my crippling shyness made me write about an opera singer instead of actually being one as I had hoped. I used to compete and perform till the anxieties kicked in as a teen. I suppose I’d never be a writer if that hadn’t happened. Silver linings.

DirgesInTheDarkDirges in the Dark

When actress Cassidy May lands the lead in the story of Hellen Grimaldi’s life, she believes it could be the boost her career needs. However, the more she looks into the past of Hellen and the shocking events which led to her death, the more fearful Cassidy becomes about taking the role. Did Hellen truly summon demons during that fateful performance? Was Cassidy about to unleash the same hell that Hellen had? What dark forces were really at play behind the curtain?
