Jessica Murdoch

Jessica is a writer, teacher and experienced list maker.

She has spent almost a decade teaching primary age students and is passionate about all young people having access to critical literacy skills, opportunities to express themselves and quality representation in media. She enjoys reading, reviewing and collecting stories and she uses writing to help her figure out her opinions about books, pop culture and the world.

Her hair rarely stays the same colour for long and you can find the various mermaid shades, a collection of bookish thoughts and kid quotes, as well as the occasional food shot on her blog ( or Instagram @mermaidhairandtales. Life’s too short for boring hair and it’s better when you’re sharing stories.
