Here’s more information about Jessica Carnevale Forcier

Jessica is a former Study Abroad Advisor who escaped the world of academia to write full-time and is loving every second of it. Jessica has been a writer for as long as she can remember and one of her earliest memories is writing a story about an opera singing thief! It became a family favorite, and solidified her passion for writing.

As an adult, she continues to entertain audiences with spunky characters and memorable tales. It is her sole mission to take nuggets of the human experience and weave them into engaging stories that leave readers both entertained and inspired.

Jessica’s song writing approach is to shine a spotlight on the skeletons in your closet and the heartaches that haunt your soul. Each lyric sounds as if it was ripped from a page out of a secret diary. Always relatable and certainly unforgettable.

A lifelong poet and music lover, Jessica only recently began her foray in lyric writing. She received Honorable Mention in her first ever song writing competition, and two of her songs achieved semi-finalist status in the International Songwriting Competition. Jessica’s song Accidental Lie was a finalist.

Jessica loves the ocean, sipping sangria from mason jars and the fading art of creating mix cd’s. She’s a sucker for “quirky” humor. Julia Donaldson is her idol. She proudly considers herself a pop culture aficionado and despises when food items become trendy. Most importantly, Jessica is a fervent believer in following your dreams.


George never met his grandpa, but his Mommy says he was a special man with twinkle eyes and a honey laugh. George learns he inherited Grandpa’s love of gardening. Through this common interest young George is able to foster an inexplicable closeness with his grandfather, which leaves him feeling both comforted and full of pride.

The George Before Me is a moving yet subtle tale that explores familial bonds and the importance of keeping a loved one’s memory alive — a simple approach to loss that will leave readers feeling comforted and inspired.


MOXIE THE ROBOT GIRL is a series of stories about a young robot named Moxie who moves to an all human town. It chronicles all of her adventures, the trials and tribulations of everyday life and the added struggles that come with being a robot. It also explores the importance of friendships.

Jessica began writing for the Bedtimes Stories App (Little Lights Studio) in Summer 2017. Her series MOXIE THE ROBOT GIRL is available on the Bedtime Stories App now!
