Yeah, so, okay

My name is Jessie Knadler.H_039I live in Lexington, Virginia. I’m the author of two books, including Rurally Screwed, a love story of opposites about making marriage work amid differences and deployments that  NPR called a memoir of “unexpected, unpretentious and very funny heft.” I coauthored the cookbook Tart & Sweet, which garnered praise by Alice Waters and was featured in the New York Times

I’m mom to two little ladies, June and Katie. My husband Jake, a Major in the Army Reserves, has been away on another military assignment for the past year.

I’m a new contributor to our local NPR station, WMRA out of Harrisonburg, VA. Radio and audio production more generally has been something I’ve been burning to do for a very long time — I can’t live without radio and podcasts — and I’m thrilled to be able to develop this new craft. Look for my radio stories and writing at WMRA. I’m still working on my third book, a suspenseful black comedy, which should be complete sometime in 2016. Maybe 2o17, at the rate I’m going.
