Hi, I’m Jess, and I write. I write about different parts of the world because I love documenting it and its cultures. I write short fiction because I like to have a bit of fun and experiment. And I write about my own lived experiences around mental illness, maternal mental health and trauma to open honest dialogues about the hard stuff. Because we’re all in this together.
