Jessica Brockmole

Jessica har alltid älskat historia och lägger stor vikt vid detaljer!

Jessica Brockmole växte upp i mellanvästra USA men började skriva Breven från ön (Letters from Skye) under tiden hon bodde i Edinburgh. Efter att hennes andra barn fötts spenderade hon och hennes man en vecka på avlägsna Isle of Skye. Berättelsen föddes på hemresan och hon började skriva ner anteckningar sittandes i bilen. Först liknade det inte så mycket en roman utan snarare ett brev till henne själv, nerskrivet sent på natten när alla andra hade gått och lagt sig. Ett brev som påminde henne att inte tappa kontakten med de människor hon älskade, och som försäkrade henne att hon, efter att hon utmanat sina rädslor, skulle komma ut på andra sidan som en starkare människa. 

Jessica lever i Indiana med sin man och två barn. Breven från ön (Letters from Skye) är hennes debutroman och har hittills sålts till 22 länder. Hon har även skrivit At the Edge of Summer som släpps i USA maj 2016.

    Excellent thread on viewing the past as the diverse, complex place that it was, outside of our own modern lenses.

    Writing can be frustrating. But I remind myself that, in my line of work, risks don’t include venomous snakes.
