Search - List of Books by Nikki Gemmell

Nikki Gemmell (born 1966) is an Australian author, best known for anonymously writing the best-selling erotic novel The Bride Stripped Bare.

Gemmell was born in Wollongong, New South Wales and attended Kincoppal-Rose Bay, School of the Sacred Heart, Sydney on a scholarship, then graduated with a Masters in Writing from the University of Technology, Sydney. She has worked as a radio journalist for ABC Radio in Sydney, New South Wales, Darwin, Northern Territory, Alice Springs, Northern Territory, at Triple J, the ABC's youth network and as a producer for the BBC World Service.

She wrote three novels: Shiver, Cleave and Love Song, before the 2003 publication of The Bride Stripped Bare, which became an international bestseller. In 1999, Cleave was shortlisted in the Fiction category of the Queensland Premier's Literary Awards.

The Bride Stripped Bare was published anonymously, however Gemmell had been publicly identified as its author before publication. It went on the become the best-selling book by an Australian author in 2003.

Gemmell's narrative style has gained her critical and popular acclaim in France. She has been described in France as a "female Jack Kerouac". In 2007, the French literary magazine Lire included her in a list of what it called the fifty most important writers in the world - those it believed would have a significant influence on the literature of the 21st century.

In 2003 Gemmell wrote a weekly column for the Mail on Sunday in London which formed the basis of a compendium titled Pleasure: An Almanac for the Heart (2006). She published two books in 2009: a novel, The Book of Rapture, and a non fiction essay, Why You Are Australian — A Letter to my Children.

Four books by Gemmell, Shiver, Cleave, The Bride Stripped Bare and The Book of Rapture, made the longlist of "Favourite Australian Novels" as chosen by readers of the Australian Book Review.
