Jess is the author of the acclaimed gryphon (or gryfon) book series The Summer King Chronicles. I didn't know who she was when she went OMG and pounced me for a picture on I think it was Friday at RF 2015. I like posing for cute chicks and was happy to have made her day.
Then I saw her in the Dealer's Den and it was my turn to go OMG. I bought all three of her books in hardcover on the spot, and KS-backed her fourth book, which is coming out soon. Seriously this is the JK Rowling of gryphon story-tellers. So enchanted to hang out with her. This was one of the things that made RF2015 the best con experience I've had to date.
