Awash in Talent!

2016 Kindle Scout winner!

So much Talent can kill you.
Welcome to Providence, Rhode Island, home of telekinetics, firestarters, and psychics!
Emily can't escape her annoyingly Talented telekinetic healer sister without committing a crime.
Kelly must escape her pyrokinesis school and bring Emily's sister to Boston - her mother's life depends on it.
Appointments with Emily might drive her psychic therapist insane.
With so much Talent, sometimes it's all you can do to function in an un-Talented society.

Includes a Reading Group Guide for lively discussion with your friends.

About Jessica

Readers, please contact me with questions or to learn about book club discounts at I personally attend to all correspondence and would love to hear from you! 

I grew up in Northern California, but I've moved so many times, I really don't know what to say when people ask where I'm from. "Not here," is usually the most accurate answer.

Before I met my husband, I usually moved in pursuit of education, which included stints in Massachusetts, Iowa, England, Spain, and Rhode Island. My favorite US city is Boston, where I met my husband. In eight years, we lived in nine different places, moving around in search of something that might convince us to stay put. 

I was a fiction and creative non-fiction editor at Fireship Press in amazingly unique Tucson, Arizona, for nearly two years. With support from Fireship's founder, I established Açedrex Publishing to bring you the finest reading material in English and Spanish, mainly in e-book form. Check it out at I was a founding member of Loose Leaves Publishing ( We released award-winning literary, historical, mystery, and thriller novels, edited and designed to the highest standard. I'm now a freelance editor. I'll work with you to make sure your book is the best it can be!

I've published fiction in many venues. I've collected the best in UNPREDICTABLE WORLDS: STORIES in ebook and softcover. You can find my short novel about a woman's struggle to find herself under some extraordinary circumstances, TREE/HOUSE, in softcover, Kindle, and audiobook. My epic of family, betrayal, and revenge in early medieval Spain, SEVEN NOBLE KNIGHTS, was published by Bagwyn Books. My paranormal urban fantasy, which is Gilmore Girls with a twist, AWASH IN TALENT, is available from Kindle Press. I've also written a poetry chapbook, DUSK BEFORE DAWN.

My translation of an inspiring medieval story, The Abencerraje, is available for a pittance. I have also published literary criticism: Law and Order in Medieval Spain and Deu-lles o que merecian: Violence in the Cantigas de Santa Maria.

Besides writing, the things I love most in this world are Spain and rhinoceroses.
