Jackie Pentecost

Biography

Before graduating from college in California with a Journalism major. Jackie accepted a job with a publicity firm, extolling daily the virtues of local hotels and restaurants without having the inconvenience of actually visiting them. This led to the writing of undisguised fiction which I have pursued ever since.

Now living in Florida, she tutors English, teaching the unlettered not to say 'I have went' and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), explaining cheerfully that the usage of vowels in English are incomprehensible to everyone, not just to them.
