Jessie Blackwood is the pen name for a girl who began writing thirty years ago, but who realized there is no substitute for life experience, of which she had little back then. Since those days, she has never been quite sure if she has experienced life or if life has experienced her. In 2009, after years battling against low self-confidence, Jessie screwed up her courage and attempted fan fiction. Plenty of encouraging reviews later, she finally turned her dream of becoming a writer into reality by creating something of her own.
An inveterate role-player, historical re-enactor and incurable romantic, Jessie is an avid supporter of LGBT rights and is passionate about her writing, her extended family, history, and happy endings. She firmly believes that whatever form love takes, well, it always beats the dark. Jessie’s favorite time of the day is just before waking, when most of her best ideas come to her, or any time she is juggling five tasks at once. If, in the process of creating a story, her characters suddenly decide to take matters into their own hands and make their own decisions, she considers her work as a writer is done.
