Jessica Rising


Jessica Rising has been writing her whole life, starting with a series of stapler-bound books titled “Lucille and Benji” when she was five years old. Since then she’s been published in newspapers as well as various anthologies and magazines, but her heart and soul has always been in her children’s books. Currently she is working on the second book of her a middle grade science fiction series, “Guts and Glory, Freedom Fighters of Nil”, titled The Counterfeit Zombies of Noc.

She graduated in 2006 with honors from UI&U with a B.A. in Film, and is now a graduate student at UI&U, earning her M.A. in Writing and Literature with a focus on Children’s Literature. She is also a proud member of the Society of Childrens’ Book Writers and Illustrators.

She is a wife and mother of five. She loves to read and write, sing karaoke, go camping with her family, swims daily, and is an avid fan of British comedy, especially Monty Python.
