Gem is a biologist by training and an artist by heart. Shes spent her career studying fish, birds, bugs and many other critters, all providing a colorful tapestry for her stories. She writes contemporary romances with varying degrees of heat, but the common thread is a natural setting or a scientific twist.
Her first love was painting and came to writing romances only recently. The similarities in the process amaze me. When I write, I lay down a background wash first and gradually add form and structure, just like I would with a blank canvas. The last step is adding nuance and balance. Theres nothing more satisfying than a finished manuscript and a finished painting.
She makes her home in Minnesota with her husband and daughter and a pile of cats and dogs and horses. When shes not writing or attending assorted youth sporting events, shes painting, on canvas or digitally.
