I’m Jackie, and my passion is writing. My favorite place is the ocean. I love painting landscapes, collecting sunglasses, and crave sunshine like there’s no tomorrow. I was born and raised in South Florida. I worked at IBM as a Marketing Manager, writing technical spec-sheets for computer engineers. Now retired from the corporate world and writing fiction, family saga, and romance full-time. I am currently living in South Carolina.
I view life with vibrant colors as my imagination comes alive, and my visit here on earth, I squeeze every ounce of my ambition into the word, grateful. My paintbrush is my pen, and the canvas is my diary, as I write some colorful words about southern families because love is always in the picture.
I enjoy writing about human relationships, life struggles, love, trust, redemption, and overcoming tragedy. The highs and lows in life are captivating. It’s best to write what you know. Come along and enjoy the journey, discover something about yourself, pursue your battles, and maintain life’s triumphs.
If you are a curious creature, and you wonder what inspires authors to write. How do the creative juices flow? The simple pleasures of painting, music, and words come from the heart. Painting on a canvas and watching the image come alive makes me marvel at life. Music moves and stimulates me. Words create powerful spells, mood, and atmosphere. Sometimes words can make your spirit dance. All of that together makes me giggle about life and sometimes cry. It’s best to get it all out of your system. My most valuable life lesson on that subject, it cost nothing to be nice. Life serves karma consequences.
