A Court of Stomachs and Flus

It’s just like the title suggests. I’ve been sick as a dog. There’s a little (okay big) stomach bug going around my household. So obviously I brought it to my fiance’s household. Although I hope I really didn’t do that.

And let me tell you – I tried to read while I was in bed all day. When you haven’t eaten in like two days and have been lying down in bed for at least a whole day – books are really heavy. But that’s not even the worst part. The worst was when I almost threw up in my book instead of the bucket because I couldn’t sit up fast enough.

There’s nothing more terrifying than almost ruining a book that way.

I mean you can fix it if you get it wet…but vomit? How do you even clean that off the pages?

She holds an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults, an MA in Writing, and a BA in Writing Arts (specializing in Creative Writing, New Media Writing, and Publication; concentrating in New Media Production), which she somehow managed to earn despite her three very loud and large dogs. Jessica was lucky enough to intern at Quirk Books and Picador, USA while earning her master’s degrees. Her service dog, Ringo, is very proud of all that she has accomplished and hopes to be on a back cover of a published book with her very soon. An avid reader, writer, and lover of young adult and middle-grade literature, Jessica’s bookshelf is overflowing with hardbacks, paperbacks, and a million half-filled notebooks. She is a proud fur-mommy to two lab/st-bernard littermates, a retriever-mix service dog, and one orange little hobgoblin cat, all of whom have made very audible appearances on the Booked All Night podcast.
