head-shot

Jessica’s motto is: Adventure first, then write! When not running around exploring nature and chasing after two smaller versions of herself, she also…feeds the bunny. Somehow in there she has found the time to author the award winning children’s book, The Golden Rule, as well as My Family Is Different. She is a current member of the Missouri Writers Guild. Her non-fiction and children’s pieces have been featured in a wide variety of publications in addition to some speculative fiction and horror.

Jess’s stories have been featured by: Spaceports & Spidersilk, My Wandering Uterus, Guardian Angel Kids Ezine, The Society of Misfit Stories, FrostFire Worlds, Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Teachers, Outposts of Beyond, Everyday Fiction, The Lorelei Signal, Circle Magazine, Yellow Mama, The Horror Zine, The Witches’ Voice, Blood Moon Rising Magazine, Bewildering Stories, Spirit One Magazine, Fiction on the Web, Jitter Press, Down in the Dirt Magazine, Beyond Imagination Literary Magazine, Postcard Shorts, Hellfire Crossroads, and Quantum Muse (where she used to be a staff member). She’s a  Wiccan who loves all types of people, but sometimes writes about Pagan issues too.
