While I was traveling home to Houston, Texas from Columbus, Ohio and the annual MagiFest, I stopped again in Nashville to visit with Tom Vorjohan (see episode #473). While there, he introduced me to Jessica Jane Peterson, who was just starting her week at Nashville's "House of Cards". She is a delightful, charismatic, intelligent, and creative magician. Her list of professional credits belies her young years. At only 27 years old, she has performed in Branson, Missouri, Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and aboard cruise ships. She has appeared on "Penn & Teller Fool Us" as well as making the cover of The Linking Ring journal. Tom Vorjohan was the writer of that cover story for the journal which is why he knew her and wanted me to meet JJ. You will see her perform at this year's I.B.M. convention in Scottsdale, Arizona.
You can watch her performance of fire eating on "Penn & Teller Fool Us", read the blog, see some candid photos of our conversation in my car, listen online, and download the MP3 file at: https://www.themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/481-jessica-jane-peterson
