Did you know that not only is THE BAD BOOK a fun and silly story even for reluctant readers, but it can also be a teaching tool?

Use The Bad Book as a conversation starter to talk about how bullying affects people.
Discuss synonyms, run on sentences and the importance of grammar.
Talk about how everyone can make a difference by helping those who need it and how a little encouragement can help make positive changes in others.

The Bad Book is on a mission to destroy all the other library books! This clever approach will make you chuckle as the pages turn, but it will also sneak in a heart tug here and there. Understanding is such an empowering tool. Sharing is so liberating. And together they make a perfect story! – Darleen Wohlfeil, Story Monsters Ink magazine

Five Star Book Review: “I loved the story and I believe this will be a great book for kids that have teasing and bully issues. I think it will help them look at life a different way and it may help them make friends with their bullies. Jessica is a fantastic writer with great imagination. I will be making sure my nieces and nephews have a copy to enjoy as they grow up.”

Five star Book Review: “The Bad Book is good! Great book. My kids loved it. They thought it was funny and very entertaining.”

Thanks for visiting!

Let me introduce myself. I am an author, illustrator, and artist from the beautiful state of New Mexico, also known as the Land of Enchantment.  In New Mexico, everything from our green chile, weather, and air balloons are hot.

I love to create art, almost as much as I love to be with my three girls. My work varies from pastels, pencil, watercolor, scratch art, mixed media, computer art, painting and other creative media. I love drawing animals. I have always found wildlife fascinating. I’m adding more New Mexico inspired art to my collection of drawings. In 2015, my pastel “Trading My Heels For Combat Boots: My Tribute to Women in the Military”  won first place in the Special Recognition category in the National Veteran’s Creative Arts Festival.  I am the author and illustrator of “The Bad Book”, “They Don’t Make Socks for Chicken Toes,” “Adventures of the Pink Mantis: Escape of the Pink Mantis” & the “Sugar & Spice” Series (Jack O’lanterns). My goal is to write children’s stories that teach life lessons. I want to open up new worlds of fun and make someone smile, or even better- laugh.  Thanks to everyone who has inspired me to keep writing.

Here are some samples of my art…
