About working with me...

“I’m a young writer feeling lost in the publishing world. I have love for my writing and what I have created, but the process of publishing has dismayed me. Jessica’s presentation gave me reassurance, hope, and understanding.”

- Janie R.-Attendee of Paths to Traditional Publication Workshop

“Jessica gave me just the right feedback I needed on my contemporary middle grade novel manuscript. Before her edit, I felt stuck and overwhelmed with all I knew needed work. At times I considered giving up or doubted whether my novel was workable. Jessica provided encouragement and professional eyes to get me back on track. I now have a roadmap. She maintained my vision and gave feedback that strengthens my novel by giving an overall view of themes, characters, voice, world building, and plotting. Thanks so much Jessica.”
