About Jessica Walton

Jessica is an author, teacher, parent, daughter of a trans parent and a proud queer disabled woman.

Jessica wrote the picture book 'Introducing Teddy: a story about being yourself' to help explain gender identity in a simple, positive way to her kids.

At the age of nine, Jess lost her leg to cancer and has worn a prosthetic leg ever since. Sick of legs that tried to mimic real skin she started wearing patterned prosthetic legs. She hopes to design a snow globe-style prosthetic leg, with glittering snow swirling every time she takes a step.
