Jess Stiles is a children’s picture book author & illustrator residing in New Brunswick, Canada. With a passion for old fishing towns and folklore, K-9s as much as felines, unusual pets, gardening, welding, piano, video games, teeny toys, and bourbon, Jess never runs out of ideas for her stories.
A proud mama of a human child and an awkward fur-child, Jess enjoys cuddles ‘n snuggles, movies ‘n snacks, fort-building ‘n ninja hide-and-seek. And of course, playing drone tag like a maniac.
As an accomplished photographer and artist, Jess has sold her work privately throughout Canada and the US. And though she is self-taught, Jess has learned a great deal as a member of the KidLit community, SCBWI & 12×12, and while participating in multiple critique groups and as a freelance picture book editor of rhyme and prose.
Jess has also taken Aree Chung’s course, Making Picture Book Stories and Dummies. Jess is actively building an online platform and presence and welcomes you to view and share her Instagram feed @_jessstiles.
Jess is, and always will be, a dance-machine extraordinaire.
