Jessica Knauss


My epic novel set in medieval Spain, SEVEN NOBLE KNIGHTS, will be published by Bagwyn Books in 2016. I’ve published short stories and poetry in many venues. I’m also an exacting editor who prefers historical and literary novels with a flair for fantasy. In times long ago but not forgotten, I worked as a librarian and a Spanish teacher.

  • Jake's Monthly- Magic Realism Anthology on Aug. 29, 2012

    All the stories here are worthwhile, even if I wasn't sure they all qualified as magical realism as I understand it. I'm an author included in the anthology, so I'm glad to be in good company!
