LAST NOVEMBER SKY -PAPERBACK/KINDLE EDITION: The plagiarized version of this book, titled Last November Sky by Jessica Beckwith, is still listed on Amazon US & UK.

Available on and Amazon International - Last November Sky

CARNIES -PAPERBACK/KINDLE EDITION This is my personal favorite of all of my published original works. Available on and Amazon International - Carnies

A NEW KID ON THE JOCK -PAPERBACK: Edited for Fictionpress and based on a wrestling Fanfic I wrote in 2011, this story has received a huge number of reviews on Fanfiction and has been listed as a favorite the most by readers of all of my Fanfiction works. A New Kid on the Jock Amazon was recently made unavailable, and I am working to correct the problem. Until then, it is available on for purchase in paperback form - A New Kid on the Jock Createspace


Jessica Beckwith: This "author" stole two of my books along with the original novels of others directly from Fictionpress and attempted to publish the stories as her own work in 2013. After being personally notified about the unathorized publications, I researched the pen name and found almost a dozen websites where this person had attempted to establish herself as a legitimate author using the works of others. I did file copyright infringement claims with Amazon and Amazon UK. Though I received shallow responses from the Amazon UK team, they did delete the plagiarized versions of Last November Sky. Amazon US appeared to be more avid about handling things, though they have yet to delete the unauthorized versions permanently from their site. The good news is that all false publications from Beckwith have since been made unavailable for sale. I also posted notices of the plagiarism committed by this person on all of the websites where she had tried to establish herself as an alleged author. More extensive research revealed that she had also stolen the cover pictures for her novels off of various websites simply by searching for keywords related to content featured in the novels. Ironically, one of the novels she plagiarized from another author was titled: Stolen.

Unauthorized versions of Benjamin Wonderland on Amazon -Plagiarized Benjamin Wonderland and Amazon UK - Plagiarized Benjamin Wonderland UK Edition

Unauthorized versions of Last November Sky on Amazon (For some reason, it is posted twice on Amazon) - Plagiarized Last November Sky 1st Edition and Plagiarized Last November Sky 2nd Edition

Unauthorized Author profiles where Beckwith has posted stolen novels as her own - Beckwith on Authors Den -This was the only site Beckwith was on where I was unable to post a comment that the work was plagiarized, though I did send a complaint with proof of plagiarism to site administrators. Beckwith on Indie Writer Support -This site is difficult to maneuver, but I was able to post a comment that Beckwith's work was plagiarized. She is also featured on LinkedIn and several other sites where she consistently describes herself as an aspiring author. Search bars bring up keywords like Jessica Beckwith author. All of her profiles appear to consistently place her in Kansas/Missouri area, though other details are vague and impersonal.

Website Which Reveals Beckwith's True Nature: My research uncovered that Beckwith had used plagiarized novels to appeal to top authors and esteemed members of the internet realm. Fortunately, she was discovered by this site before receiving honors for her unauthorized work - Beckwith Revealed - yet it is unclear just how many people may have fallen for her rouse, especially since it has been made clear by my research that she has used dozens of sites to promote herself.

Thanks to the help of avid Fictionpress reviewers and authors who left comments revealing Beckwith's work as stolen, it does not appear that Beckwith has attempted to promote herself or update websites where she has claimed herself to be an author since 2013. This does not necessarily mean she has stopped plagiarizing authors. She has probably gotten smarter about hiding the stolen works and she is likely using a new pen name to continue promoting herself. If you happen to come across information regarding an updated version of Beckwith's profile, please don't hesitate to contact those she has stolen works from. The best way to stop plagiarism is to make what is happening public so that people remain informed and educated.
