Jessica Evans is a writer, teacher, traveler, and foodie. She discovered Jane Austen’s novels as a college sophomore, and fell in love with their romantic stories and biting sense of humor. Though she began posting her writing on internet forums as early as fifteen, she started writing Austenesque in her twenties. The Muse: A Pride and Prejudice Variation is her debut novel.

Jessica is a member of the Romance Writers of America’s NYC Chapter and the Jane Austen Society of North America’s New York chapter. She teaches English in New York City and lives in Brooklyn. In her spare time, she reads a lot of romance, fantasy, and Young Adult literature, bikes in Prospect Park, and fancies herself a pretty decent cook.
