Here is a link to Jessica Collins' personal blog: www.boun-see.blogspot.com.
It has a few anecdotes about motherhood and also a smattering of health and fitness columns among other things. Aside from the duties of her full-time job as a Web Copywriter, this is some of the writing that's been keeping her busy.
Jessica had a short story published in "Cup of Comfort Book of Christmas Prayer" and recently had a poem published in the Wisconsin Review.
