J. A. Jackson

Biography

J. A. Jackson, a romantic at heart, drew from her many experiences dating in the San Francisco Bay Area to come up with a series with lively plot ideas with a surreal twist which captures the fabulous crowd of loveable geeks as they encounter jealousy, betrayal, outrageous behavior, heartbreak, and romance.
She lives in an enchanted little house she calls home outside of Oakland, California, with her husband and Big Sally, an American scent hound. She comes from a family rich in story tellers. She spent over ten years working in the non-profit sector where she wrote grants, press releases and contributed many stories to their newsletter. She was their Newsletter editor for over ten years. She loves growing roses, a good pot of hot tea, chocolate, magical stories, suspense stories, ghost stories, and reading Jane Austen again and again in her past time.

Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
What do my fans mean to me? Point blank period they are the wind beneath my feet. Their enthusiasm and support for my books are most graciously appreciated by me.  Not only that their support enables me to continue with my writing.  In fact, because of several fans, who learned that I grew up in Chicago, encourage me to write about a book with it taking place in Chicago.   So, to summarize, I truly appreciate and am grateful for my fans. Their support means everything to me.
What are you working on next?
I am working on Book III of Lovers’ Players and The Seducer. I haven’t really set the title in stone yet.  But it will be like the Prodigal Son returning home.
In addition, I have two completed books.  Diamond at Midnight and this story take place in Chicago. I have the book jacket and editing completed. I need to give it a final read through and then make it available for “Pre-sale”.
The other book I have completed is Book II of Mistress of Desire and the Orchid Lover.  I also don’t have a final title yet on this book, and the book jacket needs to be completed as well as another editing read through.
