Gemma Halliday

Gemma Halliday is the #1 Amazon, New York Times, and USA Today bestselling author of several cozy mystery and suspense thriller novels. Gemma's books have received numerous awards, including a Golden Heart, two National Reader's Choice awards, a RONE award for best mystery, and three RITA nominations. She currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her boyfriend, Jackson Stein, who writes vampire thrillers, and their four children, who are adorably distracting on a daily basis.

Gemma's path toward becoming a bestselling author was not a straight line—more like a zigzagging path filled with obstacles! Prior to putting pen to paper, she worked as a film and television actress, a teddy bear importer, a department store administrator, an architect's assistant, a preschool teacher, a temporary tattoo artist, and a 900 number psychic. Luckily none of these panned out.  

Following her success as a self-published author, Gemma opened up her own boutique publishing house in 2013. Since then she has published over 200 titles from more than 40 authors and taken almost half of those from debut authors to USA Today bestsellers.
