Raised in Rockford, Illinois, Jackie had planned on being a biology teacher, earning a Bachelors in Biology from Augustana College and a Masters in secondary education from Phoenix University.
From a very young age she was an avid reader, and wrote and illustrated stories. This led her to nanowrimo, which she has completed five times, and to launching a self-publishing company. Her first books are a Go Draw series of guided sketchbooks; current titles available are Go Draw Little Knights and Go Draw Little princesses. Future plans are to self-publish a line of children’s art and music books, as well as traditionally publish YA novels.
Jackie has worked with children in Sunday school, youth martial arts and, most recently, with military after-school programs for the Sci Fi club and musical staged at Naples, Italy high school.
Jackie, her husband, and very energetic daughter currently reside in Iowa after recently returning from several years in Italy.
