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.

“Jessica is very knowledgeable and also very entertaining, with a great sense of humor. Her presentation was well organized and structured. Very clear explanations.”- Nancy W. – Attendee of Beta Reader Basics workshop
