Jaye Hope Bowden is a creative writer by day and a waitress in a fast-paced city restaurant by night. She is happiest swimming in the ocean or trekking off into wild bushlands to escape suburbia. She adores spontaneous road trips, vegan brownies, quirky craft beers and grooving to live music with friends. Being raised in a family of musicians, artists and adventurers invigorated her imaginative spark, unique outlook and open-mindedness towards the world. Her family live scattered across Melbourne and Tasmania so she feels that both hold a place in her heart, although this magical island will always feel like home.
