Member Since
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.

This book is a masterpiece. Unsettling and brilliant and totally consuming. I started reading the first chapter a couple of times - the novel is 720 pages long and I just needed to find enough peace and quiet. Eventually, I did, and I’m so glad. A LI ...more

Quotes by Jessica Jarlvi  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“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!)”
Jessica Jarlvi

“share a love of literature, Anna was a kind and thoughtful”
