    wow this is cooler now.

  3. Love this book!! And im a 68 year old kid!

  4. Love the book, can’t wait for the second one!

  5. I’m only half way through “The Crow’s Nest” and I’m hooked!! I need the second book now! I keep getting into trouble at school because I keep reading it instead of doing my lessons :( So far my favorite character is Tabitha/Glory. Thanks for the book.

    • Hi Rachel! Thank you very much for letting me know that you like my book. :) Tabitha is an interesting character; Book 2 centers a lot more on her and less on Trevor. I hope to have it ready soon, though I don’t want to rush it. But you’ll be one of the first to know when it’s ready!

  6. Hi Jessi,

    My name is Tessa Trow and I’m your biggest fan! Can I please have your autograph? And can you please let me win ONE game of Mario Kart??


  7. Jessica, I’ve enjoyed your blog and I’d like to nominate you for the Liebster Award. This is for new blogs or those with only a few followers. If you’re up for it, please e-mail me and I’ll tell you more. It’s CAT09tales -at-

Tarot Salve

"The bad news is you're falling through the air, nothing to hang onto, no parachute. The good news is there's no ground." -Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Yes, I read tarot and do reiki, but what I really do is offer emotional support to people who have just realized that they are falling through the air, groundless, and help them find their balance in the present moment.
