"I want to tell you everything I know
carry you and guide you

to things in wonder
and your eyes meet mine

I once thought I was to show you the world
when all along you came to show me."

Available in Paperback & E-Book
$22.00 NZD

"Oh how I had waited for this day, but never anticipated how one could feel so put together and in pieces all at once.
How one tiny person could cause all this chaos in my heart and home.
And my husband and I were like two entirely new beings, the sun on our face one minute and at the bottom of the ocean the next.
But there, my anchor.
Reminding me of who I am, not just who I was."

'My After All', named after Jess's viral poem, is her last book in the series of early motherhood. It delves into the raw and the real with a beauty that shines through even the messy truths. These pieces reflect the love we have for our growing children, our transformation as mothers, and our relationships post kids.

Jess doesn't "leave frills around the fabric of early motherhood", she writes about the love we live and breathe for them, but also the things we find hard to talk about, some things that might leave you saying, "me too".
This book of poetry & prose will leave you feeling empowered and seen, listened to and understood.

These pages are for those late nights, your bedside, or gifts.

"A million thank you's wouldn't be enough"

"To move people with words, is such a special privilege'"

"Incredibly beautiful"

Experiencing emotions and learning what they mean can be a challenge for kids. This accessible and engaging rhyming picture book will illuminate the rainbow of feelings that live in our heart.


Includes helpful notes and conversation starters for parents, guardians and teachers.

We all have lots of feelings,
it's OK to let them show.
They all live in our heart
as our very own rainbow.

"What does your body do when you're sad or angry? How do you show someone you are proud?

For children, experiencing new emotions and understanding them are two vastly different things, but poet Jessica Urlichs and illustrator Rebekah Ballagh have created an accessible and wonderous rhyming picture book about the rainbow of feelings that live in our heart that helps little ones to express their feelings.

Also a qualified counsellor, Rebekah has provided notes for parents and teachers at the back of the book to help caregivers start conversations around understanding, identifying and navigating emotions."

Available worldwide.

The Rainbow in my Heart is now available in UK book stores and will be hitting US book stores May 2022.
