What started off as a dream grew into this whole online persona called “The Jessi K Adventures”, where I not only write children’s books but also discuss my life as a mom, wife, and freelance writer.
I currently write voluntarily for three magazines; Flourish Magazine, Feo Magazine, & Pretty Women Hustle (the blog).
A lot of my freelance work is geared towards adults but my true passion is writing children’s books.
My full name is Jessica Kemp and I am the author of Never Too Far Away & the creator of “The Jessi K Adventures”.
I was born and raised in Sault Ste Marie, Ontario before moving to Toronto in 2012.
A graduate of the Child and Youth Care program at Ryerson University, I worked many years in child care before pursuing my dream of becoming a writer.

Born in an Italian city called Livorno, Martina spent her childhood peeling her knees, falling down from the bike and drawing a lot, encouraged by her grandmother who used to give her a lot of crayons!
After she discovered a passion for comic books, she decided to study to become an illustrator at the “Accademia delle Arti Figurative” in Firenze and later to move to the UK and Finland where she started freelancing as a children’s book illustrator.
In winter 2020 she also attended the professional illustration training course at the VIA University College – The Animation Workshop – in Denmark, Viborg, where she is currently freelancing while drinking a lot of coffee.
Martina did the final book design and formatting.
