Welcome to WanderJess!
I’m Jess McWilliams, a 24 year old oddball from the chilly North East of England. I’ve been a writer for longer than I’ve been a traveller, but the past couple of years have given me so much to share with you all!
I’m normally a fictional writer. My biggest achievement so far is having my first novel published, ‘Played’. I’ll drop the link just below in case you fancy taking a look!
From there, I moved onto Freelance Writing, assuming it would be a quicker and easier way to build a profile. I was kind of right, except there was something I didn’t take into account; there was no passion. I was writing other people’s projects, projects that I had to pretend to take an interest in. A couple of times I was even scammed, and lost out on the money altogether.
I took a break from writing before I began to hate it, which left me wondering who the hell I was anymore. Being a writer had defined me, who was I once I took that away?
I packed my bags and signed up for some adventures so that I could go on to help me find the answer. So far, I’ve travelled around South Africa, Thailand, and Europe.
Not only am I steadily piecing together the intricate parts of my identity, but I’ve also reawakened my passion for writing. Not only can I write about my amazing experiences, but hopefully I can advise or inspire even just one of you to go and see the beautiful world for yourself. If that’s not motivation, I don’t know what is!
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy the posts!

Keep chasing that sun, people! <3
