My name is Jackie, and I have a strong passion for writing. The ocean is my preferred place to hang out. I also take pleasure in painting landscapes and collecting sunglasses, and I enjoy the sun as if there were no tomorrow. I have been a health enthusiast for as long as I remember. Check out my BLOG on my website. I was born and raised in South Florida and previously worked as a marketing manager for IBM, publishing technical literature for computer engineers. I am now retired from the corporate world, and currently living in South Carolina, USA, and writing full time.


I see life in vibrant colors, and I use my imagination to bring stories to life. I strive to make the most of my time on this earth and am grateful for every opportunity to reinvent myself with time. Writing is my passion. My paintbrush is my pen, and the canvas is my journal. I write about Southern family life, and love is always painted in the picture.


My novels range from mystery thrillers to family suspense, contemporary romance, and women's fiction. I am known for writing touching stories with unexpected twists. ​My thriller series BUILDING SANDCASTLES journey will take you from North Carolina to Switzerland or you can go south to Florida and visit the PLANTATION HILL series. A standalone thriller with interesting alpha females is INSIDE GLASS TOWERS one of my favorite locations in Palm Beach. Coming soon is NINE HUSBANDS of Aunt Ida a Spy Thriller. Coming soon is A READYMADE FAMILY. New to my bucket list are Children’s books for Smart Kiddos under the PIN name J.W. Lynaugh.


Please take your time and explore my books on Amazon and check out my Website. Sign up for my monthly Blog. Join me on Social Media, I look forward to meeting you. I follow who follows me. Camaraderie is important. ​ If you have had the chance to read my novels, I would love to hear what you think. Please email me at, or find me on Social Media. Leave your sweet imprint and subscribe for new releases, updates, and giveaways.

Always with love,
