About Jessi Gage

Jessi lives with her husband and children in the Seattle area. She’s a passionate reader of all genres of romance, especially anything involving the paranormal. Ghosts, demons, vampires, witches, weres, faeries...you name it, she’ll read it. As for writing, she's sticking to Highlanders and contemporaries with a paranormal twist (for now). A career student (aka indecisive and inquisitive bookworm), Jessi brings her love of research to her worlds and characters. Her guiding tenet in her writing is that good always trumps evil, but not before evil gives good one heck of a run for its money. The last time she imagined a world without romance novels, her husband found her crouched in the corner, rocking.

    Hi Jessi! I watched a lot of youtube videos of dudes chopping up wood. Seriously. :^) Research, you know.

    Gotta love that research. I had a Scot with a little too much of a good thing under his kilt. I will admit to some drool-worthy research on that on *winks then blushes*
    Thanks for stopping by! Loved, LOVED Lumberjack in Love, and will be featuring it on one of my Free Publicity Fridays soon:)
