Jackie Walker is a loud-mouthed lady with a strong passion for sarcasm, slapstick comedy, cussing, rescuing cats, theme parks, giggling to herself, and drinking margaritas.
In elementary school she discovered she had a passion and a talent for writing. Jackie used her writing skills to fake her way through twelve years of school, four years of college, and many jobs where she was foolishly considered above average and often rewarded for her ability to use words to convey meaning. Crazy, right? She even duped an entire college into thinking she was valedictorian material. Hilarious! After college, she snuck her way into a career where she was paid real money to write things that sounded important and serious. Alas, careers like this typically occur in a business world where it is “frowned upon” to have a sense of humor and speak fluent sarcasm. Thus, Jackie decided to say goodbye to the chains of the business world and become an authorprenuer. Now that she is in charge, she can call her boss names all day long and not get in trouble. She can also clock in late each day and give her co-workers (her cats) the finger when they look at her funny.
Since she was raised by wolves in sunny Central Florida, Jackie often finds herself saying the wrong things in the most inopportune times, leading to embarrassment and shame. This trend has continued throughout her life and to this day she often can be found putting her foot in her mouth and then sneaking away to write something. It turns out that writing is a coping mechanism she uses to process her embarrassment over her inability to be socially appropriate. When she is not talking to the imaginary characters who live in her head and bringing their stories to life on paper, she is hanging out with her teenage son or extended family. She also spends approximately thirty-six hours each and every day scooping litter boxes and refilling water bowls in devote service of her cat overlords. In addition to hanging out with family, taking on craft projects that she never finishes, and writing steamy love stories, she also spends her time reading romance novels in practically every sub-genre except historical (because there just weren’t enough showers back then for sexy times. That’s right. I said it.)
