Jessica Brody

Jessica Brody knew from a young age that she wanted to be a writer. She started "self-publishing" her own books when she was seven years old, binding the pages together with cardboard, wallpaper samples and electrical tape.
Brody graduated from Smith College in 2001 with a double major in Economics and French and a minor in Japanese. She went to work for MGM Studios as a Manager of Acquisitions and Business Development, and then, in 2005, she quit her job to follow her dream of becoming a published author.
Brody is the author of two novels for adults --- THE FIDELITY FILES and LOVE UNDER COVER --- and the young adult novels THE KARMA CLUB, MY LIFE UNDECIDED and 52 REASONS TO HATE MY FATHER. Jessica's books are published in over 10 foreign countries including the U.K., France, Germany, Czech Republic, Russia, Brazil, China, Portugal and Taiwan. She now works full time as a writer and producer, and currently splits her time between Los Angeles and Colorado.
