In April 2003, after being married for less than a year, her husband was sent to Iraq as part of the U.S. Army’s First Armored Division, based in Baumholder, Germany. As the first months of the deployment dragged on, Jessica set out to discover how other wives were coping with the strain. Her first book, A Year of Absence, tells the stories of six very different women who find a way to guide themselves and their families through the most difficult fifteen months of their lives. Jessica holds a BA in English from Tulane University and a master’s degree in international public policy and administration from Rutgers University. She has written for Stars and Stripes and The Dallas Morning News.
