J. M. Tuckerman and her service dog Ringo.

A New Jersey-based writer, editor, and podcast talent. Jessica graduated from Rowan University in August 2014 with a BA in Writing Arts, again in May 2016 with an MA in Writing, and finally, in January 2019 from Sierra Nevada University with an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults.

Jessica has interned in the publishing world. She held a Social Media and Digital Marketing internship at Quirk Books in Philadelphia, PA with Julie Leung and a Managing Editorial internship at Picador USA, an imprint of Macmillan Publishing, in the Flat Iron Building in New York City, NY.

She is an avid reader, writer, and lover of things like: YA lit, sci-fi shows, Pokemon Go, rocking out in her car, and washi tape bookmarks.

When she’s not reading she’s writing. And when she’s not doing either of those things she’s talking to some writer somewhere about their craft and process.

Or she’s delving deeper into debt by looking into yet another writing degree.

Proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernards, a lab retriever SDiT, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the podcast.
