Jessica Betts is 24 years old. She has published short stories, poetry, and articles. She is currently hiding, most likely due to a fugue state she calls The Creative Coma. This state allows her to stop being a person and start being a machine that churns out semi-acceptable manuscripts in need of approximately 12 rewrites. She could have stopped at the 4th rewrite and had a perfectly good novel to hand you, but where is the fun in that?
Jessica is a strong believer in Permanent Semantic Shifts, and that fear of a word will only increase the negative connotations of that word. Meaning there will be swearing in her writing. It will be used extensively. You have been warned.
