More About the Author
A spell as a freelance feature writer for a number of publications from the The Daily Telegraph to Sunday Times Style followed before she turned to ghostwriting, starting with 'Is There A Psycho In Your Life?', written with the forensic psychologist Kerry Daynes. Jessica also worked with the founders of notonthehighstreet.com on their book, 'Build A Business From Your Kitchen Table', which went to no.1 of the Sunday Times Business bestseller list and the recently released follow-up 'Shape Up Your Business: The Founders of notonthehighstreet.com share their story in a 30-day success plan.'
Jessica is best known for her work as author of three official companion books to a certain hit television show: 'A Year in the Life of Downton Abbey' (2014),'The Chronicles of Downton Abbey' (2012) and 'The World of Downton Abbey' (2011). The first two hit the The Sunday Times, New York Times and The Globe & Mail (Canada) bestseller lists. These books led to her being in demand as a speaker at events both in the UK and US, discussing the real-life inspirations for the show, both historical and characters from her family (Jessica is the niece of creator and scriptwriter Julian Fellowes).
Jessica has spoken at literary festivals from Cheltenham to Scarborough and toured with her lectures from Atlanta to Denver and almost every midwest city in between. She has also made numerous appearances on radio and television, from BBC Breakfast to ITV's The Lorraine Show and Never Mind the Full Stops (a BBC4 panel quiz), as well as co-hosting a one-off Downton special for BBC Radio Oxford.
Recently, Jessica has also been doing extensive talks in the USA, focusing on Downton Abbey and the historical context of the show.
Jessica's work for the Downton Abbey books means she has done in-depth research into the social history of the early 20th century, particularly the changes that women were experiencing then, as well as looking at the correlation between the great leaps in technology that were happening then and how similar it feels today.
She has 8,000 followers on Twitter. Jessica lives happily in Oxfordshire with her husband Simon, son George, stepchildren Louis and Beatrix, an energetic Labradoodle and two chickens. But she remains a Londoner at heart, the place where her high heels remain blissfully mud free.
