About the Author
Jessica S. Olson claims New Hampshire as her home, but has somehow found herself in Texas, where she spends most of her time singing praises to the inventor of the air conditioner. When she's not hiding from the heat, she's corralling her four wild--but adorable--children, dreaming up stories about kissing and murder and magic, and eating peanut butter by the spoonful straight from the jar.
