An ex au pair, bookseller, marketing manager and Scarborough seafront trader selling rock from under a sign that said ‘Cheapest on the Front’, Jessica now works for a regional environmental charity. Sadly she spends most of her time chained to her desk wrestling with databases but likes to sneak out to one of their beautiful reserves whenever she gets a chance. Married to an extremely patient man, Jessica lives in the beautiful if damp city of York with one daughter, one very fluffy dog and two dog-loathing cats.
On the rare occasions that she is not writing, working, reading or trying to twist her daughter’s hair into the perfect ballet bun (alas, still elusive), Jessica likes to plan holidays she might have the time and money to take one day, meanwhile she uses her favourite locations in her books. She writes deeply emotional romance with a hint of humour and a welcome splash of sunshine.
