About Jacqueline Grant

My passions are history and writing. I spend most of my time researching books I am planning to write or actually writing them. I have a PhD in Caribbean and Latin American history and I teach 11th and 12th grade students at a private college prep school in Reno.

I was born on the island of Jamaica and many of my stories are set in the Caribbean or have Caribbean themes. But I also write about lots of other things and I'm particularly fond of stories that help children see their value and stories that just plain make people giggle. I hope you enjoy reading Gunga Peas Books.

Review by: Rafter Five Press on Aug. 02, 2012 :
I enjoyed these two short stories about a Viking girl. The target reader age is 8-12, not 'early reader' as described. The historical details were smoothly woven into the stories and the descriptions easily help the reader picture Inga and her life in Greenland. I also wish there had been more to each story, especially the first one. I hope the author will continue to develop these stories into longer works. Both boy and girl readers will enjoy the adventures!

This was an interesting book. I like that it was from the point of view of a girl and I thoroughly liked the stories. I think they were a little short even for the target audience. I think they leave the reader wondering what happens next. I look forward to reading more of Inga's adventures.

Review by: Nicola Martel on Nov. 03, 2011 :
This is a very enjoyable historical fiction set for young readers. It is unique in that it takes a subject and twists it a little. This story focuses on, as the title makes explicit, a young Viking girl. I always think of their male counterparts, so something focusing on the feminine is refreshing.

My nine year old daughter thoroughly enjoyed reading this. Her one complaint: it was too short! I think a series is in order.

Enjoyable and very readable. We look forward to more from this author.

This is a great book, and one that parents will no doubt enjoy reading to their children. There was an aspect of the 'Little House' books about this.
