Jessica Marting is a romance author, art enthusiast (not quite an artist, despite all that time in art school), an avid reader, and makeup collector/hoarder. She loves old movies and TV shows, crocheting, pre-1999 episodes of The Simpsons, and treats thrifting like the bloodsport of queens it is. She is unapologetic in both her dependence on coffee and her collection of vintage Man From U.N.C.L.E. novels (mostly purchased on eBay in the middle of the night in an insomniac haze due to said coffee addiction). Jessica lives in Toronto with her husband and pets.
