Jessica's: Website | Blog | Goodreads | Facebook
Jessica Shirvington is the author of THE VIOLET EDEN CHAPTERS also known as THE EMBRACE SERIES. An entrepreneur, author, and mother living in Sydney, Australia, Jessica is also a 2011 finalist for Cosmopolitan’s annual Fun, Fearless Female Award. She’s also one of the lucky few who met the love of her life at age seventeen: Matt Shirvington, a former Olympian and current sports broadcaster for FOXTEL and Sky News. Married for almost eleven years with two beautiful daughters, Sienna and Winter, Jessica knows her early age romance and its longevity has definitely contributed to how she tackles relationships in her YA novels. Previously, she founded a coffee distribution company, Stella Imports, in London, and before that was involved in the management of restaurants Fuel Bistro and MG Garage in Sydney. Jessica is now a full-time novelist and living her dream.

Why I Love Her <<
I think one of the main reasons that I love Shirvington's novels so much - besides her obvious skill of writing awesome-sauce stories - is that she is a fellow Australian. It's nice to see that our little country is able to produce an awesome talent like her's. And then there is the series that she writes, The Violet Eden Chapters. It is such a good series and when a new installment is released, I read the whole thing in one sitting. Then the next day I usually read my favourite parts all over again - my mum thinks that I'm crazy.
I highly recommend anything by Jessica Shirvington, so get on it and read something of hers!
