About JP

Born and raised in Texas, JP made the bold decision to move 1300 miles away from the city and try her hand at the country life.

Living on a 140-acre farm in Northern Wisconsin was much more than she could have ever bargained for, yet it was there, JP wrote her 1st Novel and discovered that life doesn’t always turn out the way you had initially planned.

With a flourishing banking career and becoming #1 Best Selling Author, JP Summers never imagined an unexpected onset of severe head pain, debilitating vertigo, and loss of motor skills would lead to the 2nd type of migraine diagnosis: vestibular.
The quality of life she once knew was nonexistent. Living with the migraine disease for three decades still wasn’t enough to prepare JP for the disappointment of one failed treatment after another. Upset with the fact that her symptoms were only getting worse, this romance novelist decided the only way to fight back against her deteriorating health was to turn her misfortune into something positive. She found her true calling as a patient advocate for migraine, cluster headaches, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia.
Adventures of a Spoonie Mom is a blog where JP shares each of her triumphs and struggles as a newly single mom in her early 40’s that lives with several invisible illnesses while caring for two teenage boys; one of whom lives with abdominal migraine.
