Your Special Star, her debut children’s book, was inspired by the loss of her son. Jessica has crafted a story of hope, paired with charming illustrations that can be appreciated by all ages. Her delicate delivery of universally relevant subject matter involving the passing of a loved one makes Your Special Star a comforting story you will want to share with others.

Jessica’s debut novel, Naming The Bits Between, is thematically similar to Your Special Star. Jessica has created characters and storylines to highlight the depth and strength of the human spirit. She hopes her readers will look at the world differently after experiencing this uplifting adventure; fully aware, we can each laugh, learn, and ultimately be changed by one another.

Jessica’s writing is also featured in five anthology books published by the Association of Rhode Island Authors:

Shoreline, Under the 13th Star, Selections, Past, Present, and Future, and Hope

Original writing, poetry, photography, and graphic design are now available through Jessica’s online store, GreetingsSunshine. Her writing and products offer warm sentiments for a brighter tomorrow!
