Oasis Beckoning

Adult
Nearly dead from thirst and the sun, a man fled through the desert. Just when he believed he could no longer go on, he stumbled upon a deep pool in a jungle at the edge of the wasteland. The water soothed his parched throat and gave comfort to his burnt skin. Then, that which lived in the pool gave him a stranger and altogether more intimate kind of comfort. (F/M)

About Jacqueline Brocker

Jacqueline Brocker only realised she wanted to be a writer when her year five teacher told her she could write. Of course, she’d been making up stories in her head ever since she can remember, and has since discovered the wide gulf between what’s in her mind and what makes it to the page that can be shown to people. She hasn’t decided if her first publications mark the end of this period or the beginning.

She spent her early childhood in Jakarta, Indonesia, a more unusual experience that when questioned about she’ll respond “it was all I knew.” Her teenage years were lived in Coffs Harbour, NSW, Australia, a coastal city that prompts residents of her current home to say “…and you here why exactly?” (Google some images, you’ll understand why they ask.) She trotted down the coast to Sydney for her university years, where she studied a mix of History, Information Systems, Japanese, and dashes of English.

On graduating, and deciding that if she was plotting film scenarios during seminars rather than being entranced by the discussions themselves, she decided to concentrate on her writing while she worked in university administration, and subsequently moved to Cambridge, UK for a change in life and to concentrate more on her writing. So far, that cunning plan has worked. Whether she’ll live back in Oz remains a mystery.

Feed her tasty tomato-y pasta dishes, chocolate, and Turkish apple tea to keep her happy.
