Hello, I’m Jessica. Nice to meet you.
I’m a sociable introvert. Jesus is my best friend, as is my husband. All my other friends I have met through church or Twitter (two extremely different places it turns out). When I’m not banging my head against a blank page or procrastinating on social media, I am raising two crazy energetic toddlers. We’ll call them Galahad (aka Sir G) and the Dragon.
