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. Although it's typically advisable to focus on one audience, Jessica just can't seem to settle down; she writes Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult and (eh hem) regular adult fiction. 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.
Jessica is available for Skype Visits, Workshops, and talks about her books, writing, and related to her PsychWRITE workshops and webinars.
