Jessica Ryn is a former midwife and homeless resettlement worker. After she graduated with an MA in Creative Writing from Canterbury Christ Church University, Jessica’s short stories were published in Bella Magazine and The Sunday Express S, and her work was shortlisted for the Kimberly Chambers’ Kickstarter Award as well as the Val Wood Prize for Creative Writing. When she’s not scribbling away at her novels, Jessica can be found swimming in the sea, wandering through the woods and reading stories that pull on the feel-strings. Jessica is a carer, and she lives in Dover with her husband, two children and their high-spirited springer spaniel. Her debut novel, THE EXTRAORDINARY HOPE OF DAWN BRIGHTSIDE, was published in 2020 with HQ Stories and Jessica’s second book, THE IMPERFECT ART OF CARING, will be released in November.
