About the Author

I'm Jessica Louise Smith and, like my protagonist Evie Stone, I'm from the rural county of Herefordshire - famous for cider and bulls. That isn't where the similarities end; I also lost my long-term, on-off-on-off-on-again boyfriend, Malcolm McClure, in a biking accident when he was just twenty-four years old. Hence Godcorp was born.

After Malcolm died the questions that plague Evie were the ones that haunted me. Where had he gone? Why? How could I get him back? I'd never felt anything like it - the gut-wrenching pain and absolute, world-crashing, everything-I've-ever-known-is-wrong disbelief. I couldn't accept he was gone. Everything screamed: 'Mistake!' I began to wonder about the reality of the afterlife and Heaven. I mean, think about it, such an operation would have to be immense, and what kind of organisation that big never makes mistakes? The idea of Heaven as a massive corporate and Evie Stone's quest to bring Malcolm back home was born.

Outside of being a writer I work, as Evie does, for a specialist IT sales agency. I sell business analytics solutions into the major UK banks and retailers, and have always had the jammiest streak in the world. It serves me well.

I'm also a qualified NLP practitioner, Reiki Master and I've got the highest score on Bop-it of anyone I know. I got through to the screen test for BBC's The Apprentice a few years back and am now glad I didn't make it, as I'd never have written Godcorp.

I'd say the book is my biggest achievement. It's just a shame Malcolm will never read it.

This book is different. If you are not open in your reading please do not read. It shares a modern story of God and the Devil and Evie Stone. Don't get all scared and freaked out now. It's about this woman Evie who is dating this guy who she loves SO MUCH, he dies and she knows it just was NOT his time. So she tries to find out if it was or was not his time, she meets prophets, she meets the devil, she tries everything, no matter how hard she tries she cannot find anyone to get any answers. Finally she finds out that her boyfriend got into Godcorp. The devil helps her get into contact with God. Evie falls in love with the Devil but she doesn't know it, she can't because she's still to in love with her boyfriend. God gets a trial and advises Evie to show up. So she does and they give her boyfriend the option to go back to earth or stay there. So does he stay? Does he go back with Evie? What will happen with Evie and the Devil? Will Evie realize she's in love with the devil?  I liked the book and the story line. It didn't change my beliefs at all. I am open though and understand it's fiction. So I enjoyed and am now on to book two. Can't wait to see what happens. I love a different type of book, so am enjoying them! Great book!

Awesome, imaginative, captivating. I could go on and on about the awesomeness that is Godcorp. This book is not only incredibly unique, but you're hooked from page one. Jessica Smith has crafted a book that paranormal romance and urban fantasy fans are going to flip over! I seriously cannot say enough about this book. I've an avid reader of paranormal romance and I was blown away by this one.
