Jessica Khoury is of Syrian and Scottish descent and was born in Toccoa, Georgia. She wrote her first book at age 4, a fan fic sequel to Syd Hoff's Danny and the Dinosaur, which she scribbled on notebook paper, stapled together, and placed on the bookshelf of her preschool classroom. Since that day, she's dreamed of being an author.
Jess currently lives in Greenville, South Carolina, with her husband, two terrible dogs, and an abundance of books, shoes, and sweet tea.
She is the author of THE FORBIDDEN WISH and the Corpus trilogy, ORIGIN, VITRO, and KALAHARI.
