About Jessica Bird

Jessica Bird looks up only occasionally from her novel in progress, about a photographer who learns his brother who disappeared when they were children has only now died. In addition to receiving a scholarship to attend GrubStreet's Novel Incubator program in 2020-2021, she has taught literature and composition at Columbia University and the University of Rochester, ghost written a business textbook, temped at a variety of high-drama workplaces, and published television recaps for now-defunct websites. An avid baker, Jessica throws dinner parties to foist new desserts on guests, and aspires one day to win a blue ribbon in a pie baking contest. She lives in Massachusetts with her husband and two persnickety dowager cats.
