About The Author

Jessica Shirvington

Jessica Shirvington is the author of THE VIOLET EDEN CHAPTERS also known as THE EMBRACE SERIES. An entrepreneur, author, and mother living in Sydney, Australia, Jessica is also a 2011 finalist for Cosmopolitan’s annual Fun, Fearless Female Award. She’s also one of the lucky few who met the love of her life at age seventeen: Matt Shirvington, a former Olympian and current sports broadcaster for FOXTEL and Sky News. Married for almost eleven years with two beautiful daughters, Sienna and Winter, Jessica knows her early age romance and its longevity has definitely contributed to how she tackles relationships in her YA novels. Previously, she founded a coffee distribution company, Stella Imports, in London, and before that was involved in the management of restaurants Fuel Bistro and MG Garage in Sydney. Jessica is now a full-time novelist and living her dream.

Eight People in Whose Life you'd like to live in for a day

Given that I’m a bit of a history geek I’ve used people both past and present – I hope that is okay!! 

1. Shakespeare – just to be in a mind like that. It would be incredible. 

2. The Pope – To see the daily function. The behind the scenes meetings and I would be intrigued to view the world from such a dedicated point of view. 

3. The President – Well, hello! It would be cool to know what it was like to be the most powerful person in the world - for just a day. 

4. Alexander the Great – so young and in a different world. It would be incredible to see the world from his point of view. 

5. Napoleon – Again, for the reasons above. Just to experience what drives and motivates someone like him. 

6. Cleopatra – A woman of such stature in ancient times. I’d love to see that! 

7. C.S Lewis – As one of my favourite all time authors – to spend a day in his creative mind would be very cool. 

8. My daughters – either one of them. I’d be very tempted to see the world through their eyes and know how they see their Mum and Dad!

Above all else, though I try not to think about it, I know which life I prefer. And every night when I Cinderella myself from one life to the next a very small, but definite, piece of me dies. The hardest part is that nothing about my situation has ever changed. There is no loophole.

Until now, that is...

For as long as she can remember, Sabine has lived two lives. Every 24 hours she Shifts to her ′other′ life - a life where she is exactly the same, but absolutely everything else is different: different family, different friends, different social expectations. In one life she has a sister, in the other she does not. In one life she′s a straight-A student with the perfect boyfriend, in the other she′s considered a reckless delinquent. Nothing about her situation has ever changed, until the day when she discovers a glitch: the arm she breaks in one life is perfectly fine in the other.

With this new knowledge, Sabine begins a series of increasingly risky experiments which bring her dangerously close to the life she′s always wanted... But just what - and who - is she really risking?
