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 participate in an active critique group and, along with my wonderful critique partners, I am a co-host of the #KidLitVibes writing contest. I’m also host of #SaturdayStrides on Twitter. I hold an English degree, and 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.

When I’m not writing, I’m probably in the kitchen baking something scrumptious, at the library, or playing outside in the Florida sunshine with my son. Thanks for stopping by!
