She currently lives in Central Minnesota with her crazy family, including three too adorable for their own good mutts, and three deviously cute cats. Fall and winter finds Jessie feverishly writing, and she spends springtime knee deep in edits and revisions. Summers are spent selling T-shirts, books, and other assorted trinkets to unsuspecting conference and festivalgoers. http://www.jessiechandler.com/
