Writer and Author

Scottish Author Rosemary Gemmell                              

Welcome to my website! Have a browse around and hopefully return for another visit. 

I have always lived in Scotland which inspires my creativity, from the beautiful west coast where I was born to the central and more easterly areas where I'm discovering many interesting new venues.

I'm a member of the Society of Authors, Romantic Novelists' Society and the Scottish Association of Writers.

Available now from Amazon UK, Amazon US and worldwide!


My three Aphrodite and Adonis novellas are now published in one edition, The Aphrodite & Adonis Trilogy!

The mischievous goddess of love, Aphrodite, and her lover, Adonis, enjoy playing a game with tourists to their Mediterranean island of Cyprus each spring and summer. Choosing a couple who might benefit from their special kind of 'help', they aim to bring prospective lovers closer together and overcome inhibitions or anything holding them back from commitment.

Meanwhile, Aphrodite and Adonis are aware they only have two seasons together before being parted again and must make the most of their time together.

Enjoy the beautiful setting of Cyprus for this mythological and contemporary romance trilogy!

Being a Writer

After being a published short story and article writer, I moved on to novels. I now write historical and contemporary romance and tween fiction as well as occasional children's stories and poetry.

I've been a student nurse, a business travel consultant, a business/education liaison administrator and a direct banking advisor. Then I became a mature student with the Open University and gained a BA Hons in European Literature and History, followed by a post-graduate MA in Humanities.

Now I love being a writer; it's finally who I am.
