Jess Capelle writes stories that are generally of the YA or MG variety, always of the action, adventure, or thriller variety, and often of the fantasy, sci-fi, or horror variety. She’s also a ghostwriter for writers who don’t write about ghosts (sadly). Jess holds a BA in French and a Juris Doctor. She practices law part-time and spends the rest of her time tutoring high school students, freelance writing, and editing both fiction and non-fiction. She served as co-founder and coordinator of the Houston YA/MG Writers Group and is a member of SCBWI, Sisters in Crime, and Codex Writers. Jess lives in the Houston area with three feline overlords who like to “help” with her work, so you’ll often find her typing away in local coffee shops. Her muse, Lucinda, is generally absent. Jess is represented by Jennifer Udden at Barry Goldblatt Literary.
