Hey there, and welcome to my corner of the Internet!
I’m Jess and I have many passions; they boil down to helping others recognize their value and lead meaningful lives through therapy and fiction. I have a B.A. in psychology and I’m currently working on my M.A.
As a writer of both fiction and nonfiction, I navigate the human experience and sculpt new lives. My ideal readers enjoy seeing our world in new ways and exploring ideas surrounding identity, love, and the interconnectedness of all lives. I enjoy sharing with readers the inner workings of deeply flawed characters as well as the ways we communicate with each other, every individual their own universe within our own.
I love exploring new opportunities to share my work with the world. I’m also pro-Oxford comma.
So What Do You Write?
My family will tell you I was never without a pencil and paper as a child. My first novel took years to shape. 81,000 words, many drafts, countless rounds of edits later, and 50+ rejections later, it will always be the book of my heart – it’s the book that taught me how to write a book, and taught me that I could. I’m still seeking representation for this upmarket women’s fiction book, because I believe in it and I know someone else will too. Read more about my current projects here.
Besides my novels, I’ve written a variety of short stories, poems, and nonfiction, including contributing to One Love and Boston Hassle. I even wrote a ten-minute play that I got to see performed. See specifics here.
