Jessica’s life revolves around one thing: family. She finds herself spending her time with her son and her niece – sometimes acting as the third wheel herself, as they amuse each other with the usual antics of a one-year-old boy and a four-year-old girl.

Being an English teacher, Jessica ensures that her son reads a book every night. She tries to incorporate a range of genres for him to enjoy, however, the common theme she searches for is that each book should have some sort of moral message. As a teacher of English and Media, Jessica Skogstad knows the importance of well-written words and clear, insightful messages. Always looking for books to read to her son that reinforce his already accepting nature, and coming from a wonderfully diverse family herself, Jessica decided to create her own story. This led to her journey of writing Enid and Her Two Mums.

Jessica lists kindness, motivated people, and her family as her biggest inspirations, and when not writing (she also turns her hand to adult and YA fiction), she can be found playing basketball, boxing, or binge-watching her favourite TV shows. She also has a particular affection for Kelly Clarkson, and listens to her not just while writing, but also while living!
