Jessika Fleck is a writer, unapologetic coffee drinker, and knitter who sincerely hopes to one day discover a way to do all three at once. Until then, she continues collecting vintage typewriters and hourglasses, dreaming of an Ireland getaway, and convincing her husband they NEED more kittens. She has lived all over the U.S. from Hawaii to Vermont, but currently lives in Illinois, where she’s learning to appreciate the beauty in cornfields and terrifyingly large cicadas. She resides there with her sociology professor husband and two daughters. She is the author of the Castaways and the Beware the Night duology.
