Jessica Lewis is a Black author and receptionist from Alabama. She has a degree in English Literature and Animal Science (the veterinarian plan did not work out). She lives with her way-funnier-than-her grandmother, who answers all of her wild questions about ghosts and zombies and werewolves, even if she’s annoyed sometimes (read: all the time). When she isn’t writing or working, she enjoys binge watching cooking shows and anime or playing farming sims. Her debut novel, BAD WITCH BURNING, has two starred reviews and releases August 24, 2021.
