Interview With Jessica Nielsen

Interview with Jessica Nielsen, author of So You’re Not Supermom.
About the Series:

So You’re Not Supermom is a series on her take on motherhood and the challenges she faces raising them while trying to keep her sanity at bay.
I love reading thiese books because it’s a no hold back account on what it’s like to be the mother of seven children while holding down two jobs and it’s absolutely positively hilarious.


1. Tell me (and the readers) a little bit about yourself, including a quirk that you have.

A. I am an ordinary, hard working Canadian born and raised in the British Columbia Kootenay’s. Two of my children require extra needs and I do the best I can like any other parent. I am an avid traveler when I get the chance I love history, ghost and alien shows. I will tell it like it is with a lot of profanities.

2. How did the idea for your book, So You’re Not Supermom, come about?

A. Well, this was pure accident. I was working as a Health Care Aide when I injured my knee that required surgery. I was frustrated with the fact my kids ran the house and I couldn’t do anything so an outlet I wrote my frustrations. I did not publish right away but after the second knee surgery and working volume two I took it as a sign.

3. Are you planning to release another book anytime soon?

A. Yes, actually in the fall of 2020 it is a memoir I’ve been working on for 2 years now. It glimpses into my past traumas.

4. Did you always know you wanted to be a published author/poet?

A. No, I always wrote things of all kinds but never thought I was good enough.

5. Did you look up to any author or poet while growing up?

A. Honestly, no I really did not read much as a child and never took education of any kind serious until after I had kids.

6. I’ve always talked about this, but if your book was made into a movie, who would you want to play the main characters?

A. Julia Roberts I just love her and she did a fabulous job in Erin Brockovich.

7. Lastly, do you have any words of wisdom for aspiring writers out there?

A. Every thing written is worth it to someone. You just have to find your audience.
Thank you Jessica for the chance to interview you. This series has definitely opened my eyes to the truths of being a mother like looking at both sides of a coin.
