Jessica Johnson was born in Provo, Utah and currently lives back and forth between Northern California and Eastern Idaho while finishing her B.S. degree in Biology. Jessica is very self-motivated and independent and has a remarkable ability to create which she displays through, music, pencil and paper, photography, and written word. Her first love is running, and she runs cross-country daily. Jessica developed an interest in reading and writing during elementary school and read at an advanced level early on. During these years she wrote and illustrated several children's books and was requested the rights to publish one of her articles by the publishers of The New Era magazine. Much of her work is contained in shorter descriptive essays, which she uses not only to entertain but also as a way to express emotion and discover herself. In 2012 she published her first book, What You Need To Know to Understand, a nonfiction/health/psychology novel, and was featured on Good day Sacramento in an interview on the inspiration for the book.
She plans to continue to pursue writing as one of her passions as long as life permits.
