Hammer and Nails
Josh Bledsoe is the author of Hammer and Nails, illustrated by Jessica Warrick, which encapsulates many of the things he loves about life: family time, a good cup of coffee, and impromptu living room dance parties. In addition to loving his job as an elementary school teacher, Josh enjoys trying to keep up with his Cross Country team on training runs, fishing with his best friends, and laughing on the couch with his beautiful wife. Josh considers himself a lucky man. Between his own two children and his “other” children (a flock of fun-loving fifth graders), inspiration for writing is everywhere. He is currently working on two middle grade novels, in addition to other picture book titles. Josh lives in Nashville, TN. Hammer and Nails is his first picture book.
Jessica Warrick is the illustrator of Hammer and Nails, written by Josh Bledsoe. As a child, Jessica drew funny, somewhat inappropriate pictures for her friends at recess. Watching people laugh at her creations was her favorite activity, thus igniting an infatuation with illustration. In the past, she has worked as a muralist, cashier, grocery bagger, cookie decorator, dog and cat kennel attendant, landscape nursery worker, receptionist, data entry specialist, pizza delivery driver, overnight shelf stocker, and t-shirt printing intern. Today, she works as a full-time artist specializing in humorous children’s book illustration from her home studio. Hammer and Nails is Jessica’s third book.
