About Me

Jessica Kulekjian is a make-believer, pretend-world visitor, and life-long learner. When talking to grown-ups, she calls herself a picture book author, educator, and homeschooling mom of three. Jessica holds a M.A. in Teaching and believes the natural world is the best classroom. Her mission is to cultivate curiosity and playfulness.

Jessica’s nonfiction debut picture book, Mighty, in the Kingdom of Trees, from Kids Can Press, will sprout on bookshelves in Fall of 2021. Her fiction debut, First Notes of Spring, will publish with Bloomsbury in 2022. Jessica lives in Central California with her husband and three wild ones where she can typically be found on a learning adventure, reading, writing, or wondering what’s next.

Jessica is represented for all literary projects by Tracy Marchini and James McGowan of Bookends Literary Agency.
