I'm a 27 year old author, speed-reader, and lifelong bibliophile, but you can call me Jess. I like to play with imaginary friends and then write about it.

I'm a certified Master of English, having graduated with my MA degree with First Class Honours in 2017. I also hold a bachelor's degree in English & Media Studies and a diploma in Creative Writing. You might say I know a thing or two about books...

Having dabbled in self-publishing since 2012, and with several of my books reaching the top 10 in Science Fiction on Wattpad in 2016, I was signed by a New Zealand publisher at the end of last year. All of my self-published titles were then withdrawn from Wattpad and Kindle etc., and are currently undergoing massive rewrites and editing with the support of Steam Press and Eunoia Publishing. The release of the first book in my first YA scifi series, Generation Icarus: AIR BORN, will be later this year! Make sure you follow me for updates :)

Happy reading!
