About this author

Jesse Giles Christiansen is an American author who writes compelling literary fiction that weaves the real with the surreal. He attended Florida State University where he received his B.A. in English literature. He is the author of the novel Pelican Bay, Amazon bestseller in sea adventures and literary fiction, outselling Old Man and the Sea by Hemingway. One of his literary goals is to write at least fifty novels, and he reminds himself always of something that Ray Bradbury once said: "You fail only if you stop writing."

I fell in love with this book a little more with each page. Ruby is touchingly human, yet finds within herself a hidden strength to face perhaps our greatest fear. The author's vision of what lies beyond is memorably poignant in its simplicity and cl...more

“And to love such a librarian requires a surrendering to her eccentricities, a bowing to her pathological quietness, an obeisance to a reticence that is utterly untreatable. If you cannot commit to this sort of dedication, then let her be. Let her wander in wonder among her books and live out her days in her own world without you.”
Jesse Giles Christiansen, Pelican Bay

“I should have known right then that I was dreaming. But oh how we hang on to dreams even when we are gifted the largest of clues.”
