During her nine years as an editor for Disney Publishing, Jessica Ward contributed to more than eighty books ranging from travel guides to cookbooks, collector's art books to children's storybooks. Highlights included the annual Birnbaum Guide to Walt Disney World, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Price of Freedom, Minnie & Daisy BFF Friends on Ice, The Chew: A Year of Celebrations, and Once Upon a Dream: From Perrault's Sleeping Beauty to Disney's Maleficent. Since then, Jessie has written The Ultimate Disney Party Book, Disney Princess Crochet, Disney Frozen Paint-by-Number, Disney Classic Paint-by-Number, and My Little Pony Playtime Stories. Jessie was delighted to collaborate with the DCPI artists in curating this collection. She lives with her husband and daughter in Monroe, Connecticut, where she enjoys paddle boarding, playing volleyball, doing yoga, and (usually) finishing the New York Times crossword.
