Jessica first discovered Laura Land when her mom gifted her a copy of Little House in the Big Woods. Meant to be a distraction while on a summer car trip, Jessica devoured the book before packing commenced. Since then, she has been enthralled with all things Little House. When she is not reading, Jessica works as an elementary school media specialist in Georgia. She resides in suburban Atlanta with her husband Ryan. Jessica also enjoys volunteering with her sorority and serves on the board of the Delta Phi Epsilon Educational Foundation.
