Jessica Peterson is a Canadian author, born in Fredericton, N.B. However, after moving to Surrey, B.C. at the young age of three, she had the pleasure of growing up in a large, multicultural city.
With a lust for life, not long after completing high school, she set out to create some memorable adventures. Soon discovering her love of travelling, she found herself jet setting off to Singapore where she worked as a kindergarten teacher. From there, it was onto Russia where she immersed herself in the culture and fell in love with the country she had once feared. Then, after a short stint in the south of France, she returned home to Canada.
Having discovered her passion for writing while living abroad, she dove into the crafting of her first manuscript. Life soon interrupted with the arrival of her first child and soon after that, her second. But with her love for writing fighting its way to the surface, Jessica soon found her way back into the world of literature.
Now back in the town where she was born, living with her boyfriend, her two darling daughters, and her snuggly cat Lucy, she tries to find a balance between being a mom and being a writer. And with hopes of moving readers with her words, she has finally taken the terrifying leap of self-publishing.
