“Jess Lourey has been an invaluable resource as I begin my writing career. Having been a fan of her writing long before I decided I wanted to write seriously myself (and also part of my inspiration to transition from reader to writer), I can say that getting to work with Jess is even better than reading her stellar books. She helped me on my path to published writer.”
