About Jessica

Jessica Jones

I am a writer.

Following my diagnosis with breast cancer, I started writing the acclaimed blog Chemo Chic – A Guide to Surviving Cancer With Style. The blog was chosen by the Times as one of 40 Blogs that Really Matter. I later launched The Chemo Chic Project, a website where anyone affected by cancer can tell their story or share their experiences, and The Good Glamour Guide, a website dedicated to natural beauty. The Chemo Chic Project was chosen by Channel 4’s 4Beauty as one of the best health blogs. The Good Glamour Guide received the runner-up prize in the best independent blog category at the Johnson & Johnson Journalism Awards.

My memoir The Elegant Art of Falling Apart (Hachette, Australia, Unbound, UK and Hachette, Poland) is a moving and funny story of betrayal, break-up, breakdown, and cancer. It has received much press exposure and critical acclaim.
