Jessa Russo is a hopeless romantic, a lover of all things 1990's, and a passionate adventurer with dreams of seeing the world someday. When she's not travelling, you can be sure she's planning the next adventure.
Jessa lives in Southern California with her husband and their teen daughter, where she watches too much Netflix, enjoys local Temecula Valley wine, and spends as much time as she can making memories with her friends and family. She's a social butterfly by nature, and you can probably find her at any given time with a smile on her face and a glass of champagne in hand, surrounded by the people who feed her soul.
She will always call Southern California home, but her heart is in New Orleans, and she hopes to "retire" in Baja.
Jessa writes mainly young adult fiction with a strong romantic influence. She's obsessed with young love and all that goes with it, from the sweetest first kisses to the pain of that first devastating heartbreak. She is the author of The Ever Trilogy, which is a young adult paranormal romance series that consists of EVER, EVADE, and ENTWINED. She is also the author of DIVIDE, a modern, gender-flipped retelling of Beauty and the Beast.
Jessa is represented by Laura Zats of Headwater Literary Management.
