If anyone were to ask six-year-old Jessica what she wanted to be when she grew up, the answer would have been automatic: an author. Thirty years and a long and winding road later, little Jessica's dream has come true with the publication of Papa's New Home. The inspiration for Papa's New Home came from an acting class assignment to write an autobiography. At the same time, Jessica was noticing a trend among the children she was caring for. Many had lost a grandparent or someone dear to them. In addition to missing their loved one, they were confused. They didn't understand why their loved one had left them or where they had gone. Remembering her own sadness and confusion, and a very special visit from her Papa, Jessica set out to answer those questions in a way a child could understand them with Papa's New Home.
