Publisher info

Jacque moved from Sitka, Alaska in 2012 to follow her husband to the ND oilfields, but her mother's health precipitated a move to Idaho where she took care of her mother until her passing. Jacque has been writing since she got out of the US Navy in 1988. Since about the late 1990s, life got in the way of her writing and was shelved until the editing of her niece's novel inspired her to pursue her love of writing again. She likes writing mainstream fiction, murder mystery, romance, and historical romance. She writes nonfiction under the name J. R. Hopkins, romance under Jacqueline Hopkins and will be writing under J. R. Walton for her mystery and a psychological thriller she has in mind. There are so many ideas and characters roaming around in her head, wanting to be set in Alaska and other places Jacque has lived, such as Oklahoma, Colorado, Idaho, Washington, Iceland, Connecticut, California and Hawaii where her daughter was born.

  • Upgrade on Oct. 15, 2011

    Stephen's debut novel, Upgrade, is a well-written, well-formatted book with an ending that was a total surprise. The main character, Brent, is a lonely millionaire who makes a medical change to his life; one he feels will make him more attractive to the opposite sex. So after the change, he not only attracts one, but three; one of whom he grows more attracted to than the other two, but can't decide what to do with the them and his relationship with them. Stephen has a way of getting into the head of his female characters, making them believable, likable, or hatable, but you can definitely remember them. I look forward to reading more books from this author and give this debut novel 4.5 stars.
