Hi! My name is Jessica. As you might have guessed, I love to read!
Reading isn’t just a hobby for me. It’s my way of escape and healing as I live a life contending with serious mental illness. I’m a reader and a writer, navigating mental illness and life as a professional, wife, and mother.
Four Things About Me
- I have a husband, three kids, and two dogs. We are a blended family from two previous marriages, and it has been quite a journey. I wouldn’t trade it for anything now.
- I grew up in a tiny town in Nebraska. Think Little House on the Prairie but in the 1980s, with a two-room schoolhouse, unlocked doors, and zero diversity. Luckily my parents recognized that I needed to expand my mind and my experiences. For that I will be forever grateful.
- I embrace education. I have three degrees, including a Doctorate of Education, and I would continue to go to school if time and money allowed.
- I love books, as the title of this site clearly indicates. I am a book hoarder with a never-ending list of to-be-read tomes.
