Welcome to JessWoodburn.com!

Thanks for checking out this page! I’m looking forward to sharing my publishing-adventures with you.

I have always been a voracious reader, not always of the highest quality literature, but highly entertaining. And I have always loved writing. After completing my Masters degree in Professional Communication I felt like I finally had an idea for a story that could fill a book. That was in 2009.

Seven years and two children later, I am finally ready to share my book with the world!

DOG DAZE OF SUMMER features recent university grad Amy Vining, who plans to travel and work illegally in the UK. However, her dreams of an adventure-filled summer come to a crashing halt when a customs agent catches on to her plan and sends her home. Those of you who know me well, will know this is ripped from the headlines of my life! Yup, got deported from the UK one summer. Good times.

Amy mopes around at home in Ontario until her aunt in Victoria BC presents an offer she can’t refuse – pet sitting her dog at her gorgeous waterfront home – Amy pounces at the opportunity to redeem her summer. In Victoria, she of course meets a handsome landscaper  from the ‘wrong side of the tracks’ and a slick and rich guy from upper society. She’s torn between the two men. But she also finds pet sitting her aunt’s dog is anything but a walk in the park!

That’s it for today. Let me know if this sounds like a book you’d be interested in reading!
