About Me


I moved to the Washington DC area in 2012. Like a character in a fairytale romance, I recently married the one who got away. (I know - I didn't think it happened in real life, either.) In May of 2015, I gave birth to our son. I blog about him here.

My three contemporary romance books are published under my previous name, Jessica Strassner. Two of the books, 'Here We Go' and 'The One Who Got Away' have appeared on the Amazon bestseller list. In March 2012, my third book, 'One of the Guys' received an Honorable Mention in Sapphire Star Publishing's Month of Romance contest.

Going forward, any new work will be published under the name Jessica Goodwin.

I could eat cereal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I love listening to music, but I can’t sing at all. I think I’m colorblind. I'm super indecisive. I’m kind of a good cook, but my husband is the better baker. If history repeats itself, I'm so going to get a T-Rex.

If there's anything else you'd like to know, just ask!  Visit my website or find me on Twitter or Facebook and I'll get back to you ASAP!  Thanks for stopping by!
