About the Author
Jess Townes is the author of several forthcoming picture books. A lifelong storyteller, Jess has worked in public education, non-profit development, birth and lactation services, as a freelance writer and an actress, but her favorite part of any job is the connections she builds with other people. She believes that there is no better path to those connections than through our stories. Jess lives outside St. Louis with her husband, two teenagers, two cats and a fifty-pound lap dog.
