Jessica Bayliss is a fiction author with a Ph.D. in clinical psychology who loves all things reading and writing. Her work crosses genres including romance, urban fantasy, and horror. She writes for all ages, but has been focusing on books for young readers. Member: Horror Writers Association; International Thriller Writers; Romance Writers Association; Society for Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. She is also a Senior Editor for Allegory Magazine. For information on submissions, click here.
Because one cannot live on writing alone, Jessica also spends a great deal of time with friends and family. She is a lover of all animals especially one very special Havanese and one extremely ornery cockatiel. She also loves to cook, eat, and exercise (it's all about balance, right?) and is a firm believer that coffee makes the world a better place. She lives in Connecticut.
Jessica is available for Skype Visits, Workshops, and talks about her books, writing, and related to her PsychWRITE workshops and webinars. For media kits, see the individual pages for each book.
