Genres: Fantasy, Children’s, Young Adult
Jessica Mathews began writing picture books for children at a young age. Her father would write down all of the stories she told him. Jessica likes to continue the tradition of making up stories for children starting with her debut picture book, The Old Man and the Pirate Princess. Jessica wants to be able to work with schools, libraries and after care programs to help children discover their love of reading, writing and creating. She wants her books to inspire others as much as her favorite books inspired her when she was growing up.
