About Jessica Kate

Hi! I’m Jess, and I’m a writer.

Jessica Everingham Writing says hi!

Here are ten fast facts about me:

1. My novel ‘Love and Other Mistakes’ will be released by Thomas Nelson in July 2019.

I write Christian contemporary fiction with sassy heroines, fun romance and real emotion.

2. I produce and co-host the StoryNerds videos and podcast with my fellow author and StoryNerd Hannah Davis. Tune in and nerd out with us about the best books, TV shows and movies!

3. I also write this blog. It’s now about my journey with writing, and many of my older posts went deep on my journey with God. Check out the archives if you’re interested!

4. My job is to write online training courses for a bank. One course featured a robots v humans battle. I’m not saying it was as epic as Batman v Superman, but…pretty close.

5. I’m a total screenwriting groupie. Although the other week I read the script for Intersteller without seeing the movie and was like, ‘Whaaaaaaaaaaaat?’

6. I do things other than write. Like read. Melissa Tagg, Jenny B. Jones, Denise Hunter and Janet Evanovich are four of my favourite authors at the moment.

7. I grew up on farms with my four siblings. I can milk a cow like nobody’s business.

8. I’m also really involved in a growing church plant.

9. Bucket List items achieved so far: going to a drive-in cinema; visiting America including New York and Disneyland; being on a real movie set (it was a tiny Australian production, but still!) ; seeing Circus de Soleil; eating a double-scoop ice cream cone (not fulfilled till I was about 19); visiting The Big Bang Theory set at Warner Bros. Studios; and writing my novels!

10. I’m Australian. I just realised you guys didn’t know that yet. And I’m 27. Just to give this some context.

If you’d like to hear more from me you can can contact me at jessica@jessicakatewriting.com, sign up to my newsletter, watch my StoryNerds videos or listen to the podcast, follow me on Instagram, or hit the Facebook ‘like’ button.

I hope to hear from you!

  1. Hi, Jessica. I saw your post to ACFW’s course loop and thought I’d check out your blog. Your site looks fantastic, very professional. I can’t believe you run a boarding house with 65 teens! Fantastic! Keep up the good work. 🙂


  2. Jessica, want to thank you again for stopping by my blog last week. I appreciated your feedback 🙂
    Looks like we have some things in common: journalist background and novelists (though I’m as yet aspiring since I’m still in “pre-pubbed” mode) #someday 🙂



  3. Hi Jessica, your page popped up on my Twitter account. Probably because we’re linked to ACFW and other various writing groups. I loved the name of your new book. Congratulations by the way. Being published by Thomas Nelson is a huge success and one that I can only dream of. I also am a writer/story teller. I “self-published” my first short story about a month ago. It’s on Amazon and Kindle in e-book and paperback. I have so much to learn about the marketing and self-publish vs traditional publishing. I can’t wait to read your book when it comes out. I wish you all the best, and if you have any guidance for a rookie, at all, it would be much appreciated.

    Much love and blessings,



    1. Thanks Pam! Can’t wait to share it with you. My advice would be to take feedback from others and work on improving your craft, and to network at conferences like ACFW, and to trust God with it all! 🙂
