Author Jessica Bell Bio

Jessica Bell is a literary women's fiction author, poet and singer/songwriter who grew up in Melbourne, Australia, to two gothic rock musicians who had successful independent careers during the '80s and early '90s.

She spent much of her childhood travelling to and from Australia to Europe, experiencing two entirely different worlds, yet feeling equally at home in both environments. She currently lives in Athens, Greece and works as a freelance writer/editor for English Language Teaching publishers worldwide, such as HarperCollins, Pearson Education and Macmillan Education.

In addition to String Bridge, Jessica has published a book of poetry called Twisted Velvet Chains. A full list of poems and short stories published in various anthologies and literary magazines can be found under Published Works & Awards, on her website.

From September 2012 Jessica will be hosting the Homeric Writers' Retreat & Workshop on the Greek island of Ithaca, home of Odysseus.

Author Jessica Bell Review

Wow, is all I can say right now!  Check out all those links!  My friend, Author Jessica Bell has written a fantastic book.  I meant to ask her how she came up with her subject because it really hits close to home for most of us.  As I read String Bridge, I laughed, I cried, I wanted to smack around some of her characters and when the story came to end I wanted more.  This novel could easily reflect any one's household.  It is so down to earth and homey.  It actually sounds like she sat outside someones kitchen window and recorded word for word what was happening in that family.  My hat is off to you Jessica for writing an insightful and realistic novel.  I have not heard the music that goes with the novel but I'm sure if it is anything like the novel, you'll fall in love with it.

Please follow the links, you'll be glad you did.  I was honored to be able to have the chance to read and review her debut novel and can't wait to read anything else she writes!
