Jessica Jarlvi’s story is powerful. After winning the Montegrappa Prize in 2016 at the prestigious Emirates Airline Festival of Literature, Jessica published her psychological thriller books, ‘When I Wake Up’ and ‘What Did I Do?’ Fast forward a few short years, and Jessica went from being an aspiring author to an internationally acclaimed author and thought-leader who travels between UAE, UK and USA, delivering keynotes and workshops. Although Jessica’s writing tends to be somewhat dark, Jessica is driven to inspire people that “anything is possible” – anyone can lead a happy, successful life.

Jessica Jarlvi was born and grew up in a small Swedish town prior to an international career, living and working in the UK, the US and the UAE. 

Jessica has always had a love for the written word, and following a career in journalism and marketing, she submitted part of a manuscript to the prestigious Montegrappa First Fiction competition at the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature. 

Named as one of the winners, she subsequently signed a book deal with Aria and Head of Zeus (HoZ). Jessica Jarlvi’s debut novel ‘When I Wake Up’ was published in 2017 and reached number 1 on the best-selling charts. Her second novel, ‘What Did I Do?’ was published in 2018 to rave reviews. 

Can't wait to see you all there!
