Romance is nothing new to Jacki. A love affair with the arts began at a young age and inspired her to train as a jazz singer and dancer. She performed with the Seattle Pacific Northwest Ballet and acted with the Seattle Opera.
Seattle’s colorful and unique locations are a favorite backdrop for Jacki’s stories. An avid hiker, she’s often accompanied by her two golden Labs, Gus and Talley. Their deep companionship and intuition inspired her to write dogs as main characters alongside her strong heroines.
The romantic cities of England and France ignited a deep-seated passion and Jacki is certain she spent at least one lifetime dancing in the Moulin Rouge.
A geek at heart, Jacki loves superhero movies, but she’s still waiting for a super woman who doesn’t have to wear a unitard to qualify.
Her debut novel, AN INNER FIRE, releases November 14, 2013.
