About Author

JR Wesley

JR, aka Jesi, is the PFWA’s Chief Information Officer. Her formal education was in Information Systems and Technology with a minor in Business, but her passion has always been for all things literary. Outside of PFWA, Jesi is the founding editor of Crimson Melodies Publishing – a micro-press for dark-fantasy with heart. When not editing, reading, or attempting to uncover all the writer groups in Greater Philadelphia on behalf of the PFWA, Jesi is a writer, a Dungeons and Dragons Role-Player, and small business technology consultant. There aren’t enough hours in the day, but she works with what she has and one day hopes to be able to publish her own book alongside the authors she’s proud to work with.
