Hello from the PNW! My name is Jessica. I write and illustrate books for tiny humans, and I design corporate marketing materials for larger humans. I live just outside Seattle with my husband, two kids and our miniature schnauzer, Duke.
I have always been a storyteller. As a child I busied myself with writing poetry and music; as a taller child, I went to college to learn about film and to write screenplays; but it was when I became a parent that I found a passion for children’s books. Seeing my kids react to and engage with a story is pure magic, and I was fascinated that such a small format could house such big experiences. I want to create material that encourages a lifelong love of reading, which is why I strive to tell stories that are fun, sometimes quite silly, and always entertaining.
