Jessie wrote romances with fantasy elements, as well as short stories. Her works include "Miss Haroun Al-Raschid" (1917), "The Girl from Kurdistan" (1918), "The Undying Monster: A Tale of the Fifth Dimension" (1922) and "Babylonian Nights' Entertainment: A Selection of Narratives from the Text of Certain Undiscovered Cuneiform Tablets" (1934). In 1943, the work "The Undying Monster: A Tale of the Fifth Dimension" (1922) was filmed by Twentieth Century-Fox.
Kerruish's career dropped off precipitously after the publication of "The Undying Monster". In the 1930's, she began to suffer from debilitating migraine headaches, which prevented her from working effectively. Although she contributed a few stories to the "Not at Night" anthologies through the 1930's and 1940's, Jessie never matched the output of her early years and died an obscure death in 1949.
It's worth noting, that, during her career, Kerruish also contributed to several periodicals, including Novel, Lady's and Weekly Tale-Teller.
Jessie was such a broad-minded person, that her writings left her readers with the impression, that she traveled a lot, yet she never ventured farther from England's shores, than across the Channel to the Low Countries and France, other than in her mind's eye.
Physical Characteristics: At the age of seven, Jessie suffered a severe childhood illness, which left her deaf for the remainder of her life. She also had poor vision, however, it didn't stop her from becoming well-read and versed in a broad range of subjects.
