Jess the Pirate

Jess is one character who is actually based on someone I know. The real Jess is a friend of mine who is in the Royal New Zealand Navy, so a pirate character for her is perfect! She’s intellligent, pretty (like Jess the pirate) and hasΒ just the right amount of attitude… I’m not sure if she has obsession with cupcakes, though.

Jess the pirate definitely has an obsession with cupcakes. So much so, that in the third book (which I’m drafting now) she and Simon travel the world to find exotic new recipes so they can open their very own bakery!

    • She is lovely! We don’t see her much in book 2, but she comes back in all her pirate-and-cupcake glory in book 3 πŸ˜‰

    • It is πŸ™‚ Even though she’s changed a lot, she’s still got a lot of the ‘real Jess’ in her.

    • She was really fun to write! Her fellow pirate friend, Simon Peabody, is inspired by chocolate mudcake (his grandmother’s chocolate mudcake, to be precise).

    • Ha, yes she is! Her partner is pretty chuffed too (and slightly jealous that he didn’t get a character named after him… oops!).

      Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment πŸ™‚
