Hi, I’m Jessica, 30-something mom to five, four in my arms and one in my heart.

On any given day you will find me taxi-ing a teenager, debating with two 5 year olds and trying to talk my three year old into going with the program for just. one. moment… all the while, looking for the closest Starbucks drive thru in Southeastern Michigan.


I’ve contributed to several books including:

New York Times Best Seller I Just Want to Pee Alone

Sunshine After the Storm 

Three Minus One

My first book Soon, a children’s book specifically for preemies, will be out (fingers crossed) Fall 2015.
