When literally surrounded by books it is no wonder inspiration took hold of Gemma Todd to put pen to paper and write her own novel. While others dream of becoming a best-selling author Gemma is well on her way with a six-figure sum for a four-book deal from one of the UK’s biggest publishers.
Gemma, from Willenhall, has been an avid book reader from her school days and now drives a huge 35ft mobile library around Walsall.
“This book wouldn’t have happened if it hadn’t been for this job,” Gemma told the Express & Star. “Being surrounded by books, having conversations every day about these creative worlds, it’s really important to me. People come out with these golden nuggets of truth, and it’s great. Everyone is different.”
Her debut novel, Defender, penned under the name GX Todd, has received great comments from The Guardian as well as rave reviews on Amazon.
