Writer, astrologer and medium, Jessica Adams moved with her family from England to Launceston in Tasmania at the age of nine. After studying philosophy at the University of Tasmania, Adams moved to Sydney writing for a living including astrology columns for magazines. This led to a commission for a book Astrology for Women which in turn led to a commission to write fiction. Jessica Adams has also donated royalties and collaborated on writing projects for the charity War Child.
