To blend her love of writing with her passion for history and the paranormal, Jessica founded Ghost Stories Ink – a group of authors, illustrators and film makers who visit historic locations and perform paranormal investigations for creative inspiration. Her work in the paranormal field has led her to appear on radio and television, speak at paranormal conventions, and work in documentary film production.
She’s at home in Minnesota with her husband, three young children, their mischievous Vizsla named Indiana Jones, their gecko Allosauros, and a variety of other critters her children bring home and name (presently including hermit crabs, caterpillars in various stages of metamorphoses, frogs, toads and a water beetle who can throw small twigs in his jar – impressive for such a little guy).
Jessica currently serves as the Assistant Regional Advisor for the Minnesota Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
