Jessica Monahan grew up in Oak Park, Illinois and attended Western Illinois University where she obtained a master’s degree in Recreation, Park and Tourism Administration. She has had some ridiculously rewarding jobs over the years. She's worked as a park ranger, volunteer coordinator at a park district facility, and recreation specialist at a job training facility for low-income young adults. She is thrilled to add "Author" to her resume! When she needs to take a break from writing, Jessica enjoys hiking, dancing, and singing along with the radio. She currently lives in Wisconsin with her husband, their kid, and two cuddly cats.
