“Jess was absolutely inviting and full of positive energy during our author visit! Our K-1 students were engaged in the storytime, played a fun game based on the book, and had the opportunity to ask questions/share stories. We look forward to her next visit!” – Sierra Dertinger, Library Technology Specialist, Drummond Elementary School

A lifelong storyteller, Jess has worked in public education, non-profit development, birth and lactation services, as a freelance writer, an actress, and currently works as a bookseller at Main Street Books in St. Charles, Missouri, but her favorite part of any job is the connections she builds with other people. She believes that there is no better path to those connections than through our stories. Jess lives outside St. Louis with her husband, two teenagers, two cats and a fifty-pound lap dog.
