Jessica Martino

Jessica is originally from the beautiful state of Wisconsin in the United States. Growing up in the rural Midwest, she always dreamed of going off to explore the big wide world. As a child, she spent her days among the trees and wildflowers, which kindled her love for stories and all things imaginative.

Jessica believes that exploring our vast planet ignites a passion for life inside all of us. After her most recent overseas adventure to Munich, she began writing her first novel. She hopes to complete this novel by the end of 2017.
