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 virtually and in person, 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.
