Jessica on Writing
I began writing in 1997 after a car accident killed my best friend. Alone, broken and unable to cope, I began writing. Through a series of novels I found byway to the story that had been inside me the whole time. Hawke and Marissa. These two love birds reminded me of a care free time in life when love wins and conquers all. But then real life sets in, and you can end up standing over an early grave, just like I did.
My characters are every bit as real as everyday person. You read their thoughts, follow their mistakes and find connection to their hearts on every page. Written for anyone who remembers the passion of being a teenager and the thrill of a bright future, the Chatham series is my pride and joy.
