Author Bio
Jessica Steele
Jessica Steele was born in the elegant Warwickshire town of Royal Leamington Spa. She was a delicate
child and missed a lot of school. In fact, she left school at aged 14, when she was diagnosed as having
tuberculosis. Jessica started work as a junior clerk when she was 16.She has two super brothers, Colin
and George, and a lovely sister, Elizabeth, and all of them are very close. She has plenty of nephews and

career, giving her every support while she did what she considers her five-year apprenticeship (the
rejection years) while learning how to write.Jessica has tried using a typewriter, but it just doesn’t work

and ready to go at the start of any one session. A friend has a secretarial agency and, after deciphering
Jessica’s writing, returns an immaculately typed manuscript.To gain authentic background for her books,
she has traveled and researched in Hong Kong, China, Mexico, Japan, Peru, Russia, Egypt, Chile and
