Who am I?
My name is Rob Gemmell and I am a writer. I have always had a passion for writing and demonstrated my creative side since I was a child at school. I loved nothing more than to write stories, to create characters and to escape inside my own imagination. It is a passion that has remained with me until adulthood and through my own self experience I have continued to write, to improve and to broaden my abilities in other forms of writing. I have a head full of ideas and I want to form those ideas into stories for everyone to enjoy.
I started out writing my own screenplays due to my love of the cinema. I learnt the structure of a screenplay and applied my own creative vision to it. I also write short stories and theatrical plays which was born through my experience in amateur dramatics. More recently I have been writing novels, both adult and childrens. I completed my first full adult novel towards the end of 2014 and I am currently working on my second.
From a love of movies came the creation of my very own blog dedicated to the reviews and features of all aspects of film - robgemmellsview. It is an area that appeals to me and the blog was created to practise my hand at the art and to share my passion for the cinema with others.
Nearly two years ago I took on a project with the help of Lancashire Life online. I do voluntary freelance work writing reviews and features for theatre groups based in the North West both on an amateur and professional level which feature on their website. Being part of an amateur dramatics group I could clearly see how difficult it was to entice audiences in to watch shows and I am hoping the work I do showcasing some of the best talent in the North West will rekindle people’s love for the theatre and gain followings old and new. If you are a theatre group based in the North West looking for promotion then please contact me for further information. Alternatively you can read some of the reviews and features I have written here.
I want to be able to do what makes me happy and I am happiest when I write, so this website is part of my attempt to turn my dreams into reality.
