Jessica H. Stone (Jes), author of the bestseller, Doggy on Deck – Life at Sea with a Salty Dog, and award-winning novel, The Last Outrageous Woman, enjoys sailing, traveling and working with writers. Her books are popular with adventurers and dreamers alike. Jes writes in a cottage by the sea.
Jes enjoys helping other writers to shine on stage (and present wildly successful public readings). She has enjoyed a long career teaching marketing and business communications at major universities. She holds a PhD in Consumer Behavior from the University of Washington where she investigated the process consumers go through when making major purchases (such as computers and automobiles).
Along with writing, Jes loves sailing and traveling. Recently she traveled to Thailand to work on a novel and to ride the majestic elephants. She fell in love with the people of Cuba and is currently planning a kayaking trip around the Galapagos Islands.
