Jessica Scott Kerrin, author
Considered an authority on children’s fiction, I’ve written best sellers about tree forts, challenging quests, exploding rockets, monster lobsters and creepy graveyards.
I support new writers by visiting schools and libraries, speaking at literary festivals, and delivering tailored workshops for both adults and children who want to learn more about the craft. I also offer mentorships and regularly serve on juries for national writing competitions.
In addition to fiction, I freelance for travel magazines about my family’s sailing (mis)adventures aboard our boat, Cape Fear.
