Welcome to my blog!

My name is Jessica Hinrichs. I am a wife, a stay-at-home mama, and a writer. I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and Children’s Book Insider. I’m also a past member of Julie Hedlund’s 12×12 Picture Book Challenge, Storyteller Academy, and Rate Your Story.

I’ve been published in Chicken Soup for the Soul, as well as The Poetry Pea online journal and podcast. I participate in an active critique group, and along with my wonderful critique partners, I co-host the #KidLitVibes writing contest. I hold an English degree, with minors in both Spanish and Communication Studies, from West Virginia University.

I live in Florida with my husband, son, two cats, dozens of lizards scurrying around outside, and a couple of gators in our backyard pond.
