Jessica Rydill writes, and collects Asian Ball Jointed Dolls, or BJD. At an average height of twenty inches tall, they take up a lot of room. Many of the dolls are based on characters from her books.
Jessica's novels are a cross-genre mash-up; they embrace fantasy with medieval warlords, and steampunk adventure with lightning-wielding shamans. Magic is used to solve daily problems, and a myriad of underworlds and other dimensions are only a short step away.
