Where Fact & Fiction Meet

By day, Jessica Strawser is editorial director of Writer’s Digest, the leading publication for aspiring and working writers since 1920. By night, she is a writer with a debut novel, ALMOST MISSED YOU, new from St. Martin’s Press (named to the March 2017 Barnes & Noble Best New Fiction shortlist!) and another to follow in 2018. And by the minute, she is a proud wife and mom in Cincinnati.

“Once in a great while, along comes a novel that defies the odds … leaving the reader both deeply moved and thoroughly astonished. ALMOST MISSED YOU is just such a book, by a writer’s writer with talent to spare. You may not have heard of Jessica Strawser today, but by tomorrow, everyone’s going to be talking about her and about this story.” —Jacquelyn Mitchard, New York Times bestselling author of The Deep End of the Ocean
