About the instructors:
Originally hailing from the Midwest, you can always expect an "ope" from Jess Moore or one of her characters. She moved to historic gold-country California ages ago and still misses Ohio when the leaves are wild with color. Jess spent years building careers in both teaching and social work, but now, she writes in the very early morning while her family sometimes sleeps. Her debut novel, The Evolution of Jeremy Warsh, is a coming of age story of a young artist finding himself. You can find more information about Jess at

Sarah Armstrong-Garner is the author of the fantasy trilogy, Sinking. She lives in Northern California with her husband, four children, two dogs, and a handful of cats. Her love for storytelling doesn't stay in just books, but also in screenplays and plays. You can find more information on Sarah at

This activity is supported in-part by the California Arts Council, a state agency.
