Jessica Young grew up in Ontario, Canada. The same things make her happy now as when she was a kid: dancing, painting, music, digging in the dirt, picnics, reading, and writing. She lives with her family in Tennessee. When she was little, she wanted to be a tap-dancing flight attendant/veterinarian, but she’s changed her mind!
Jessica is the author of the award-winning MY BLUE IS HAPPY (Candlewick Press, 2013), the HAGGIS AND TANK UNLEASHED early chapter book series (Scholastic Branches, 2016), the FINLEY FLOWERS chapter book series (Capstone Young Readers, 2015), SPY GUY THE NOT-SO-SECRET AGENT (Harcourt Children’s Books, 2015), and PLAY THIS BOOK and PET THIS BOOK (Bloomsbury, 2018).
