Nikki Gemmell is a novelist.

She is a graduate of the MA Creative Writing Programme at the University of Technology, Sydney. She has worked as a broadcaster in a previous life but now devotes her time to fiction.

Her novels are The Bride Stripped Bare, Lovesong, Cleave and Shiver. She has also written a work of non-fiction, The Book of Pleasure.
