Jessica Katharine Murray is a Londoner living in New York. She left a job as an investigative reporter earlier this year to pursue her dream of writing a novel. Said novel has been written, and now sits in slush piles across New York, eagerly awaiting the attention of a glitzy literary agent. Or a seedy literary agent. Either will do. Jessica has a master’s degree in Social and Political Theory, and writes about issues of social justice when she has the energy, and about fashion/feelings/celebrities/nonsense when she doesn’t. She has just launched a blog (dawnwords.com) to share her writing on.
