A Bit About Jess
Jess is the founder of Lizard Ink Studio, which originally began as Lizard Ink Maps. Through her cartography work, she discovered a passion for helping authors create beautiful books. Having done design work for her own publishing endeavors as well as for informal clients in the publishing world, she decided to officially expand her services to include cover design and marketing materials. As a published author with titles from Penguin Random House, Audible, Scholastic, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, as well as several self-published works, she knows what it's like to work on a book from both the writing and design arenas.
An artist from childhood, she has worked on multiple major projects in the last decade as a designer. Her illustrations and maps have been published in NYT bestsellers, independent titles, and titles from Penguin Random House, Scholastic, Harper Collins, Tor, and foreign publishers.
