Hello, I’m Jackie Williams, a 50 something year old lady on a mission having been gripped by the writing bug for the last seven years. After having written one book for my daughter (fourteen at the time) as a challenge by my doubting husband - something you should never do to me for fear of unleashing a monster! - I found that I simply could not stop. Ideas have poured out of me continuously since and I am now on book thirty-one, with even more on the way.
But will she?
A Bed of Wild Roses
My wonderful parents brought me up with a huge love of books. We read anything and everything. Bedtime stories were a treasured time of adventure and mystery. My sister and I sat wide eyed in wonder and to this day I worry about Dinah and Dorinda being pricked with pins because they grew so fat, and I never pull faces at the a waning moon (or was it a waxing one?) just in case my chops stay that way . (The Wind On The Moon)
I began reading romance while still at school. The fuel for many a teenage fantasy leapt from between the covers of wildly romantic books and my passion still lingers now for all those dark haired heroes.
After being challenged by my husband, my own beautiful teenage daughter persuaded me to write my first romance. She was only fourteen at the time and between books for children and adults. She couldn't find anything that ticked all her numerous and particular boxes and so she asked me to write a book, with all the exact ingredients just for her. Though not just a book for teens, she enjoyed the resulting tale so much that she shared it with her friends and I eventually published A Perfect Summer as an ebook on amazon.
But I have discovered that writing is not easily stopped once you start. It has turned into a grand passion that I just cannot hold back. The fingertips start tapping the keys and ideas suddenly come flooding, far too many for just one book and so I began another and then another, 30 books later I am still nowhere near done.
I hope you enjoy all of my efforts and I look forward to your comments and reviews.
