Biography

Jessica Verday

Jessica Verday is the New York Times bestselling author of The Hollow Trilogy (Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse). She wrote the first draft of THE HOLLOW by hand, using thirteen spiral-bound notebooks and fifteen black pens. The first draft of THE HAUNTED took fifteen spiral-bound notebooks and twenty black pens. THE HIDDEN took too many notebooks and too many pens to count.

A life-long book lover, and avid reader, Jessica wrote her first story when she was eleven. Titled "Bobby's Bazillion Bananas" it was about a boy named Bobby who planted a banana in his backyard where it sprouted into a banana tree overnight. There were --- you guessed it --- a bazillion bananas.

If she could have superpowers, she'd want x-ray vision and the ability to make cupcakes appear out of thin air. She believes that a shoe isn't a shoe unless it has a three inch heel and nothing beats a killer pair of boots. When not daydreaming about moving into a library of her own, she can be found working on her next story, redecorating her office or buying vintage furniture.
