Hailing from Silicon Valley in northern California, Jessica recently moved to her husband’s hometown in Michigan and now spends her days navigating a befuddling maze of snow gear, ground bologna, and gun racks in the rural Midwest. She has a habit of collecting hobbies no one is interested in sharing, such as raising silkworms, going to the opera, and learning French.
Jessica is an avid participant in everything nostalgic. She has dozens of penpals (with real stamps!), listens to her favorite music on vinyl and vintage speakers, and refuses to give up on the impossible 1940s hairstyles she finds on Pinterest.
She has published a short story in The Corvus Review, a poem in The Bitchin’ Kitsch, and artwork in The New England Review and Floyd County Moonshine. Her greatest motivator is the fact that her 12-year-old daughter has published more poems than she has.
Jessica once pretended to be a blogger and posted some humorous essays at www.landofsilkandhoney.com.
