Meet the Author

I'm Jessica, nineteen from England.


Self-confessed tea & sushi addict. I love writing, reading, music, photography, art, films and reviews.


I've just finished a Creative Writing course and I'm going back to study English at college part-time in September.


Writing is the one thing I won't give up on! My biggest dream (since the age of five with my first ever story entitled 'The Skeleton with the Spot') has always been to become a successful author. Any feedback you can give is invaluable!


Jess

    Paradise in the Forest

    The author of this little short short just made mother nature proud. It's was 40 pages long and just as sweet as can be, you don't have to be big to good, I am only talking about this book.
    Paradise is a quick look at nature beauty.

    I love it.

    Shows potential

    My favorite thing about this book was that it was different. My biggest complaint is that I never identified with the characters or cared what happened to them. The birth & death of the narrator should have mattered to me more. I wonder if changing the POV to that of the "mother" & describing her feelings of excitement, loss & so forth could make me feel more? Maybe even having "mom" lament the choice of her "children" while vowing to love them anyway.....

    Overall, I thought it was well-written & enjoyable. I just felt unsatisfied in the end. It felt almost like a class assignment. I would give it an "A" but I would hope the author would use it as a catapult to even better stories & character development. She shows great potential.
