About this author

Jessica S. Andersen is an American writer of mystery and medical romances. She obtained a PhD in Genetics, but when she finally settles on a single career, she will have been many things: a doctor of molecular genetics, a patent agent, a freelance editor, a professional horse trainer and riding coach, a fiance and the proud owner of a pair of corgis. But if you ask her who she is, Jessica will say, "I'm a writer. The rest is all background research."

Jessica lives in a smal farm in eastern Conneticut with her own personal hero, Brian, as well as the corgis, two cats and a handful of young horses, who she claims are investments but never seem to get sold.

My first steampunk :)

The first time I finished this one, I probably would've given it 3.5 or 4 stars, because I found the romantic elements inconsistent, and felt like it had two climactic battles rather than a consistent ramp-up to one Big Fight ..

Although light on the tech and heavy on the sensuality, I really enjoyed this SFR, and am looking forward to the next one!

“Being brave isn't about being unafraid. It's about functioning through the fear.”
Jessica Andersen, Lord of the Wolfyn

“One of my challenges [as a writer] is to make sure that I'm giving the reader details that the character cares about rather than details that I care about. I#d say that's key to world-building.”
Jessica Andersen
