About Jess Newton

Jess fell into writing as a teenager, tempted by the dark world of fanfiction, but it wasn’t until she hit her thirties that she started seriously writing original works. She has a tendency towards science fiction, although lately she has also started to dabble in fantasy and romance. Her stories are the ones she wished she could have read as a teenager, when as the only queer kid with lesbian mums in an all girls’ school, she often struggled to find characters she could identify with. Her motto is that everyone should be able to find themselves on the page of a book, no matter who they are. Outside of writing she enjoys theatre, music and dancing, sitting in the garden of a pub with a pint, and has two children.
