November 2016


Born in Sweden, Jessica moved to London before her career in publishing, editing and PR took her to the USA and the Middle East. Having also completed her Masters in Creative Writing and taught journalism to undergraduate students, writing is her true passion. Jessica won a Montegrappa First Fiction Award at the Emirates Festival of Literature in 2016, catching the eye of her agent Luigi Bonomi. Having since secured a multiple book deal, Jessica, known by friends to be infectiously positive, balances her time between her writing and her growing young family.

"I was completely floored and fooled by this.

I haven’t read any of this series. I didn’t realise this was book 5 in the Joona Linna series when I got it.
I’m always doing stuff like that! I really need to pay attention more.

I'm toying with the idea of writing in another genre and therefore wanted to read a great YA novel. This did not disappoint! It's brilliantly dark, suspenseful and original. Couldn't put it down.

“These days writers are also told to be politically correct and write about what they know. But if writers can’t explore and learn while they write, they would be writing memoirs and although I’ve had a fairly interesting life, there are only so many books you can write about yourself (and I’m not sure I want to write any!)”
