Author Profile

Jessica  Wayne

Jessica Wayne is the author of over fifteen fantasy and contemporary romance novels. The latter of which she writes as J.W. Ashley. During the day, she slays laundry and dishes as a homeschooling, stay at home mom of three, and at night her worlds come to life on paper. She runs on coffee and wine (as well as the occasional whiskey!) and if you ever catch her wearing matching socks, it's probably because she grabbed them in the dark. She is a believer of dragons, unicorns, and the power of love, so each of her stories contain one of those elements (and in some cases all three). Jessica lives in Texas with her husband, kids, their two German Shepherd's who believe they're cat's, and a fluffy orange cat who thinks he's a dog. You can usually find her in her Facebook group, The Wayne-O's, or keep in touch by subscribing to her newsletter where she shares updates as well as shenanigans she finds herself in.

First Kiss

I LOVE this scene! I rewrote the entire interaction three times because I wanted so badly to capture that first love, first kiss feeling, even though they are in their twenties when it finally happens.

"I will be your death."

This particular scene is incredibly important for so many reasons. One of which you won't notice until the end of book 2.
