Jessica Schein wrote and illustrated her very own feline love story at the age of 6, which thus began her short but illustrious picture book career. When she realized that her stick figure illustrations wouldn’t cut it she turned her attention toward reading, and has been a dedicated booklover ever since. Her literary taste is varied and includes young adult and middle-grade fiction, literary fiction, nonfiction, and cookbooks--into which she doodles about her (often unsuccessful) attempts following a recipe.
