When they’re not writing novels or blogging, they teach, scoot around the city, shop, and find new ways to be pleased about life. J. W. is constantly clicking away on her keyboard, sipping green tea, and eating chocolate covered almonds. April, on the other hand, bakes cookies, balances work and life, and does tree poses.
After earning their Master’s Degrees in English Literature, J.W. and April decided to pursue their true love: H.E.A.’s. The first book in JW’s paranormal series Into The Woods was released in October through F+W Media imprint Crimson Romance. JW Ashley (known to her friends as Jessica Wise) worked with the folks over at TED-Ed to create a video about How Fiction Can Change Reality, which was recently featured on Upworthy.
Currently, April and JW are writing a series of novels starring Japanese Idols and the Ladies that love them. They combined their first names and came up with the anagram Cilia Jaspers. The first novel in the series, How to Date Japanese Idols, will be available September 2013!
In January 2013, they began a YouTube series called Romance in Real Life: 100 Days of Romance Therapy.
