Spotlight: Jessica Foster
My name is Jessica. As far as I can recall, I’ve been creating stories for as long as I’ve known c-a-t spells cat and m-a-t spells mat. As soon as I knew that words formed sentences and sentences formed stories, I’ve been writing down the creations of my wild imagination.
These days, I write young adult fantasy. I’ve finished several novels and currently am learning the editing process. It’s a whole different beast from writing, that’s for certain. I’ve attended the Storymaker’s Conference for three years (with a three year break in the middle to serve a mission). Pretty much everything I’ve learned in writing came from the Storymaker’s Conference and the friends I’ve made from it. I’m sure glad I decided to go that first year.
I graduated in from BYU in December with a bachelor’s degree in biology. Currently, I work overnights at a job that lets me write at work. My future is like a blank Word document and that makes life exciting. Forget how my life story will end, I’m just trying to figure out where it begins. For the moment, I live in Provo in a small run-down college apartment with a little spoiled dog and a ginormous spoiled kitten.
