Hello! My name is Jessica, and I write and illustrate books for kids. My first picture book, Old Tracks, New Tricks, tells the story of three little wooden train tracks who shake up an old train set that’s very set in its ways.

    Here on my website, you can learn more about me and my work, find advice for writers and illustrators of all ages, and learn where I’ll be reading the book and bringing the real-life tracks and trains out to play with kids.

    Over on the Old Tracks, New Tricks website, you can find tons of fun ways to learn and play along with the book. You can even submit a photo of your latest track trick or train adventure to share: I’ll be picking at least one every week to add faces to, in the same way I illustrated the book!

    Serious train lovers will want to visit my blog, Play Trains!, where I share even more train activities and ideas, plus give advice about the best wooden train sets for kids.
