Jess’ first story was about a boy named Sam. Hand-written and hand-drawn, it was self-published using A4 paper and staples. Her next published work appeared in the school newsletter at the sophisticated age of 10. An information report, it informed readers of the Hippnoham, a member of the Poopiedoopie family and a Venus native. It’s one of her finest moments.
Thankfully, Jess’ skill has improved since then. At fifteen she decided to take her writing more seriously and penned the first draft of a novel titled Orphaned. A year later, she came third place in Sparklit’s Australian Christian Teen Writer Award, only to win the same prize for a different story at seventeen. In Year 12, Jess’ stage script was chosen for Merrigong Theatre Company’s Young Playwrights Program and had numerous articles published on Fervr.
These days, Jess multitasks immensely, honing her craft while studying a double degree of Arts and Communications and Media. She’s currently working on a novel that may (or may not) be published and trying to fulfil her vision of an epic fantasy series. Free time involves the great outdoors, dreams of publishing deals and all sort of social adventures.
