Jessica Day George earned a BA in Humanities/Comparative Literature from Brigham Young University, where she enjoyed classes in Pottery and Old Norse, and dutifully forced herself to take Algebra and Biology. Originally from Idaho, she now resides in Salt Lake City, Utah, with her husband, their young son, and a five pound Maltese named Pippin.
She had always loved books but there were always obstacles in the way, friends, family, and "real jobs". She loved books that much she took books on her honeymoon, and bought more while they were there. Over the years of writing she finally got published and lived in Idaho, in New Jersey and Delaware, and in Utah, because it didn't matter. She could read and write any where as she would say.
