About Jess Newton

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