I’ve won two prizes for short fiction. Reboot won the Writing Magazine Speculative Fiction competition in 2018, and The Wedding Gift was a runner-up in the Solutions Loans short story competition. My stories Pieces of Us and Arrivals Hall have also been shortlisted in Writing Magazine competitions.
Long-term, I’m working to finish a new draft of my first novel and will be looking for a literary agent to represent me, likely in 2021.
Fiction is my first and biggest love. It doesn’t pay the bills, but I return to it as often as possible because it makes my heart happy.
Jess – what an absolute treasure you are! Jess has become such an important part of our team that I don’t know what we ever did without her. Her assistance with copy has helped so much. She is organised, professional, has a speedy turn around, and her creative writing is of such high quality.
Jess was so helpful and wonderful to work with. She is thorough, precise and very passionate, and with her editorial help I felt so much more confident in what I had written. Despite needing a quick turn-around with my piece, she still gave me careful and detailed edits that really improved the quality of my work.
Jess has a deft touch with words, a willingness to engage sensitively with the target audience, and it's always a pleasure to see her copy in my inbox. If you're looking for a writer who can offer relevant pitches and deliver fresh, informative copy with an authentic, on-brand voice - never missing a deadline - Jess delivers in spades.
