Jessica Rydill is a British fantasy author from the West Country. She was born in 1959. She studied at King’s College, Cambridge and the College of Law, working as a solicitor for 13 years. Her travels in Israel, France, Eastern Europe and Southern Africa have provided some of the inspiration for her writing.
Her first novel, Children of the Shaman, was published by Orbit in 2001, and short-listed for the Locus magazine best first novel in 2002. A sequel, The Glass Mountain, appeared in October 2002. Both books have been reissued by small press Kristell Ink Publishing, together with sequels Malarat and Winterbloom.
Jessica lives near Bath with her husband and her collection of Ball-jointed dolls or BJD, which really aren’t creepy. Though they can be badly behaved…
