Gerry Savill

 

 

Gerry Savill lives in Gravesend and has been writing for about six years (although she did start writing in junior school and had a couple of assemblies based on her work!). She seems to be drawn to bumping people off or having a ghost appear in their lives. She's not sure what that says about her.

She's been lucky enough to have won a number of national competitions including those run by the Lymm Festival and the University of Kent/Kent Messenger. Her work has been published in The Weekly News, My Weekly, Chat It's Fate and Woman's Weekly. In 2006 she had a story published in the charity anthology, Sexy Shorts for the Beach. She is currently trying to enter as many competitions as possible, though unfortunately work gets in the way.

She has started a novel and has currently written around 90,000 words.

In December 2011, she won The Write Place's 'Student Most Likely to Succeed' award.
