“Gemma’s beautiful and comforting way with words encouraged me to be vulnerable in mine too. Her honest truths are both raw and validating and feel like a warm hug at the end of a long day. Inspiring, inviting and from the heart. I will forever remember how her stories gave me the courage to tell my own, there is so much power and beauty in that.” – Jess Urlichs, Bestselling Author of You Hung the Moon and The Rainbow in my Heart.
