George, Jessica Day, 1976-
- Existence: 1976-
Jessica Day George (1976- ) is an author living in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Born in 1976, Jessica Day George always wanted to be an author. She is a voracious reader, keeping a paperback in her purse at all times. Raised in Idaho, she went to Brigham Young University where she majored in Humanities/Comparative Literature. While a student, she worked at the Harold B. Lee Library.
George enjoyed her major because she was able to read constantly and felt that it would provide her with material for her writing career. She took four years of German, three years of Norwegian and even some Old Norse for the same reason.
She never considered the fact that she might not be a writer, and patiently held down a variety of jobs while writing and waiting for the acceptance letter that she knew would be coming.
Bloomsbury Publishing made an offer for Dragon Slippers shortly after she completed the first draft. Dragon Slippers was published in 2007, and she has been writing steadily for Bloomsbury since that time. George also finds other outlets for her writing and is found sharing her life on Twitter, Facebook, and as a blogger.
George lives in Salt Lake City with her husband and two children.
