Jacqueline lives in the far north of Queensland, Australia, on the shores of the Coral Sea. She has a house built for the tropical climate – on tall stilts and with walls that open to let the breeze blow through. She lives with her husband who is easily managed, and her marmalade cat Rudy who definitely isn’t.
Jacqueline writes romantic stories because she is an unrepentant romantic at heart. But she also loves travelling to interesting places and meeting new people, and they find a place in her stories too. She is a founding member of the Yellow Silk Dreams writers’ cooperative and they publish her shorter stories.
When she is not writing, she is kept busy by her garden which is still maturing. Right now her coconut trees look young and untidy but come back in five years and they will be towering over the house. And what could be more romantic than a coconut palm?
