I'm Jessica. For non fiction writing, I go by Jessica B. Fry, but when it comes to fiction writing, I use the name J. M. Butler. It's a tribute to my grandfather, Jim Butler. The night before he died, he told me to keep writing and that he believed I could do it. Powerful words for a little girl, and so, even though I adore my husband, I use my maiden name for my fiction writing.

Currently, I work as a freelance writer as well as a lawyer. I adore writing in all of its stages, and I find it a delightful excuse to participate in new life experiences. I just call it research. :D

For those who want to know how they can help support the stories I'm writing, add the stories to your reading lists, vote on them, follow, or promote in some way. :) Right now, the story that I'm promoting the most is Tue-Rah: Identity Revealed. It's part of a fantasy series I've been working on for many years, and it's very dear to my heart. So if you want to make me happiest, check out that one.

I appreciate all that you readers have done, and there are more stories to come. Have a great day!
