My name is Jenn Gott, and I write queer books. Welcome to my universe.

Specifically, I’m the author of a six-part epic fantasy series called The Beacon Campaigns, and an open-ended superhero series called Hopefuls. If I had to sum up my writing style, I’d say my books are about magic, kissing, and girl heroes (and girl heroes kissing other girl heroes). I like stories that are rompy and grand and funny and heroic. I don’t like unhappy endings, and I don’t like it when central characters get killed off and stay dead. My favorite story elements include time travel, parallel worlds, assassins, and one-true-love romance. I like historical costume dramas and splashy summer blockbusters with equal abandon.

In the rest of my life, I’m a freelance writer and marketer, effusive fangirl, and jack of all hobbies. I draw a lot, and have an on-and-off relationship with learning the piano. I also play an ungodly amount of The Sims and Animal Crossing. My absolute favorite thing in the world is swimming. I live in the middle of a fairytale forest with my husband, Graeme Gott, and our troublemaking cat, Nova.

For a completely random fact: between the ages of 18 and 32, I grew my hair down to my ankles. I loved it for years but when I was finally done with it, I chopped it up to my ears all in one go. I have since never gotten the same haircut twice.

In conclusion, have a picture of my cat. Because let’s be honest, that’s what you really want, isn’t it?
