Jes Young was a copywriter at Random House for eight years before leaving the job she loved to be a full time mom. She holds a BFA in creative writing from Emerson College.

She writes Urban Fantasy and Paranormal romance because, in spite of a complete lack of supporting evidence, Jes still believes in fairy tales, happy endings, and true love.

Kevin Smith had it. (Because Mallrats.)


Friday Night Lights had it. (Landry and Tyra kill someone in season 2. Um…what?)


Gregory Maguire had it too. (Say what you will, but I think we can all agree that Son of a Witch is no Wicked.)

Jes Young is on page 50 of 352 of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: I just know I'm really going to like this book once I get into it. I just can't get into it... Probably because I have the attention span of a gnat on spring break.

W. Somerset Maugham
“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.”
W. Somerset Maugham

Joseph Brodsky
“There are worse crimes than burning books. One of them is not reading them.”
Joseph Brodsky

Meg Cabot
“And in what fairy tale would John ever be any sane person's idea of Prince Charming anyway? He was the opposite of charming. More like Prince Terrifying.”
Meg Cabot, Abandon

Karen Marie Moning
“One day you will kiss a man you can't breathe without, and find that breath is of little consequence.”
Karen Marie Moning, Bloodfever

Karen Marie Moning
“Dying is overrated. Human sentimentality has twisted it into the ultimate act of love. Biggest load of bullshit in the world. Dying for someone isn't the hard thing. The man that dies escapes. Plain and simple. Game over. End of pain...Try living for someone. Through it all-good, bad, thick, thin, joy, suffering. That's the hard thing.”
Karen Marie Moning, Shadowfever
