Hello! I'm Jess. I graduated from Oxford University in 2010 with a first class degree in Biological Sciences. Since then, my popular science articles have been published in Bang! Science Magazine (2009), RSPB Birdlife magazine (2011) and Metric Magazine (2013). I also feature regular humorous columns in Ocelot Magazine and Catweazle Magazine.

In June 2013 I released a highly successful sing-along children’s book and audiovisual CD, “A Hole in the Bottom of the Sea”, published by Barefoot Books and recorded by The Flannery Brothers, which has become a favourite in homes and schools across the UK and been reprinted in four different countries. I am currently in the process of promoting my debut novel, "Jack the Re-animator".

Since 2009 I have been working as one of the main songwriters for theatre group Oxford University Light Entertainment Society, and performing as a member of renowned musical storytelling band The Mechanisms, both across the UK and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. My work as a solo musician has also been very well received.

I am currently self-employed as a freelance copy editor/ ghost writer. My most recent commissions include producing the content of Deaffest’s 10th anniversary catalogue, and creating the promotional material for Quantum Power UK’s flagship solar powered car.
