Jacqueline was born in the mid-sixties in Birmingham, England. The third of four siblings, she grew up on the edge of a large Council estate, graced by beautiful, country views from her bedroom window. A studious and inquisitive child she often dreamt of becoming a writer and could often be found curled up on her bed, reading Enid Blyton or writing short stories.
On leaving school, Jacqueline worked in Administration though gave up her job in banking, following the birth of her second son. She became a stay-at-home, single parent; a life which brought many financial struggles but being there for her children was what mattered most. She home-schooled her youngest son for two years – a move that turned his life around and gained him entry to a private education.
In her spare time, Jacqueline likes to spend time with her family and now has two adorable grandchildren. She loves nothing more than to cook a hearty meal, followed by her very own apple pie. Her other interests include reading psychological thrillers, crime fiction and the occasional chick lit. A fan of old classics, such as Lord of the Flies and Great Expectations, Jacqueline also loves current authors; with Mark Tilbury being her number one favourite.
Currently Jacqueline is retraining in Accountancy and hopes to return to full time work soon. She is in the process of writing her second book; a follow-on from Nostra Dame and another true story. She also plans to write a third book, set in the future and a mix of fact and fiction. Or at least it’s fictional until it happens….
