Questions

WHEN’S YOUR BIRTHDAY (MONTH + DAY)?

September 5th! (pssst that’s today)

WHAT’S YOUR ZODIAC SIGN?

I’m a Virgo.

WHAT’S YOUR BIRTHSTONE?

Sapphire.

DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE WITH THE SAME BIRTHDAY?

I know one person IRL who shares my birthday.

WHAT HISTORICAL EVENT OCCURRED ON YOUR BIRTHDAY?

  • 1666 Great Fire of London ended
  • 1774 Twelve of the thirteen American colonies adopt a trade embargo with Britain at the first Continental Congress at Carpenters’ Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
  • 1839 The First Opium War begins in China
  • 1914 World War I: Battle of Marne begins, French and British forces prevent German advance on Paris

Apparently a lot of fun…?

WHAT DO YOU USUALLY DO TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY?

I eat an entire cake by myself. Not alone. I just don’t share it.

WERE YOU BORN IN THE MORNING, AFTERNOON, OR THE NIGHT?

I believe I was an evening baby.

IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY PRESENT IN THE WORLD, WHAT PRESENT WOULD IT BE?

Money for books. No one ever gets the right book, you know?

WHAT’S YOUR EARLIEST BIRTHDAY MEMORY?

Ughhhhh….. a few years ago my fiance threw me a surprise party…?

HOW DID YOU GET YOUR NAME?

Well… it’s funny that I’d start this with “Well.” Before I was born there weren’t a lot of Jessica’s on my block. Plenty of Amanda’s and Elizabeth’s and Rachel’s etc, but no Jessica’s. So my mom thought she’d name me something that would be easy to hear on the block. But then Little Jessica fell down a damn well and that’s how I graduated high school with 17 other Jessica’s.

HAVE YOU EVER FORGOTTEN YOUR BIRTHDAY?

Have I ever forgotten my own birthday? No. Not yet. Give it time.

BOOK FLASH: 5 BOOKS YOU’D WANT TO BE GIVEN ON YOUR SPECIAL DAY!

I don’t actually want books on my birthday. No one ever gets me the books I ask for and it’s much easier just to buy my own.

LASTLY, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! TREAT YOURSELF TO A GIF!

J.M.Tuckerman is a neurodivergent writer with a big education. 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.
