Gemma Marie was born and raised in Leeds, England.
A passionate oncology nurse, in 2012 she decided to take a leap of faith that would see her move to the deserts of Saudi Arabia to pursue her dreams of travelling the world. Always a keen writer, it was during her travels across the Middle East and spending time working and living on tropical islands that her debut poetry book ‘screaming wings’ was born.
Taking inspiration from her own fight against society’s norms and expectations, today Gemma spends her time enjoying an eclectic life of travelling, writing and nursing. She hopes to inspire others with her poetry and prose telling her story of diversion from the world’s rat race.
Along with her passion for poetry, over the years Gemma has worked as a freelance travel writer and continues to work in her role as an oncology nurse across the world.
