I am Jessica Doe (Snape); born in 1980 and brought up in Eccles and Salford, Greater Manchester. After leaving school, I worked as a Care Assistant in a Care Home in Salford and gave that up to take on the most rewarding role as a mother. I used to read stories to my children and started making them up myself and that is where I became interested in writing. I have four children and three of my characters are modelled on them. My ambition is to become a successful children’s writer and after showing my manuscript to different people including the best critics of all…my children, I believe that other children will enjoy my books as much as they have.
What Inspired Me
I would read a lot of stories to my son who, unfortunately, did not sleep well at night. I would think of stories to tell him and found that he enjoyed the monster stories the most. I then started writing them down and would read them to my other children, who enjoyed them too. My mum was my biggest inspiration and when she passed in 2011 I decided to make her proud, by becoming a writer.
Three Little Monsters series are based mainly on Grouch, Grumble and Gruesome and their adventures. Why not come and share them too at www.3-littlemonsters.com

Peanut & Lily, A Beautiful Story About A Lifelong Friendship
on Feb. 24, 2016
What a lovely little story. I love cats myself so can relate to how the author feels about Peanut. I like the way the story is told from the cats point of view and laughed a few times when the Peanut would say something like 'of course I'm a princess, what kind of question is that? I look forward to reading more stories from you.
