Jess Carroll is a Canadian children’s writer and illustrator residing in Nova Scotia. An ex-welding engineering inspector, she now works from home while homeschooling her toddler.

With a love of all things strange and an obsession with fishing towns, Jess’ imagination never runs out of mental ink. She is a prolific writer of tall tales, an avid photographer and visual artist. She has sold her artwork and photography to private collectors throughout Canada and the United States and continues to sell her work at a local venue. Currently, her mediums of choice are inks, watercolor, graphite, and charcoal.

Jess is, and always will be, a mad dance machine extraordinaire.
