ABOUT ME

Author & Speaker for the Animals

 

Hi, my name is Jess.

I enjoy traveling to foreign lands, spending time with my family, eating food from my garden and being one with nature in the forest with my labrador.

I’m a marketing strategist by trade and am currently teaching animal-saving visionary leaders about ethical marketing practices through the company I founded in 2018: Ethical Brand Marketing. As a voice talent, I use my voice to carry out your message.

Oh, and I’m also an author.

I believe life is too short, so we should be doing what we love. And I love writing.

What sparked my desire to become an author? Really, it’s a 3-fold answer.

----------------------------------------

MY PARENTS.

They raised me to respect nature and animals.

After they passed, I realized I wanted to make more of an impact and inspire others to respect mother nature.

----------------------------------------

SOUTH AFRICA. (MOTHER NATURE)

My mom died on the same day I arrived in South Africa to begin THE most transformative trip of my life.

She didn’t want a funeral, and so I stayed in South Africa and allowed the beauty and magic of the country to help me heal.

On the plane back home, I wrote a blog post about being in Africa while grieving and published it in The Huff Post.

----------------------------------------

A BOOK.

Then I read a book about creativity – Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert – and felt inspired to write about my grief in Africa.

After several months of sitting with this idea, I felt even more connected with nature and realized I wanted to write something different.

My dad died shortly thereafter, and around the same time, I figured out my life’s purpose:

Inspiring Children to Respect Nature and Animals Through Storytelling.

 

Which lead me to …

… where I am today – Writing a fantasy middle-grade book series.

My first book is due to come out in Spring of 2019 and I’d like you to get to know the main character a little better. Her name is Lily Bowers.

But first, let’s get to know my own daughter.

My daughter, Leandra, is a very observant child. And intuitive.

I’m creating Lily Bowers in her image.

As a baby, Leandra enjoyed just watching her surroundings and has always easily felt the emotions of others. In the business world, being sensitive as a human characteristic is often seen as a deficit – but in the grand scheme of things, it’s what makes us caring, loving and human.

We need more sensitivity and observation in this world. More caring, mindfulness, and love.

We need more Lily Bowers.

Having Faith in Humanity

I believe that if every human were to respect Mother Nature and all she takes care of, we would have world peace.

Because when we’re one with nature, we’re at peace with ourselves.

And when we’re at peace with ourselves, we’re at peace with others.

And as soon as we’re at peace with others, we have world peace.

Do I believe in fairy dust? ABSOLUTELY!

But, I also believe in the power of people and the changes we can create together!
