Check out this amazing write-up about Jessica’s presentation in a middle school newsletter.

NOTE: Jessica has seen firsthand how an author visit can positively affect students. She doesn’t believe that teens should have to miss out on this opportunity just because funds are being cut. She is happy to work with schools to facilitate a visit that fits within their individual budgets.

Jessica is also happy to do Skype visits. Contact us to learn more.


*Jessica’s books and multimedia presentations are appropriate for grades 6-12.
