Jessica’s earlier career was a haphazard one, including stints as foreign newsdesk secretary in London, cook on an Australian outback cattle station, TEFL teacher in Jakarta and interpreter on expedition in Cameroon. She first stumbled into writing as a way of funding a Ph.D. in Medieval Studies, and since then she has written 60 books for Harlequin Mills & Boon’s Romance /RIVA series. A RITA® finalist in 2013 and 2009 and winner in 2005, Jessica is also a past winner and multiple finalist for the UK’s coveted Romance Prize (now the RoNA Rose Award). Jessica was awarded the National Readers’ Choice Award (Traditional category) for her 50th book, Last-Minute Proposal, in 2009 and again in 2010 for Cinderella’s Wedding Wish.
Jessica lives in York, and also writes ‘time slip’ novels under her real name, Pamela Hartshorne.
