As the city walls came into view, I brushed the sw from her pale face. Her grey eyes fluttered open for a moment, then breathlessly she murmured just one word - my name. In that moment I was able to comprehend the danger of which Ajnu had spoken and in that moment a ring of fire closed around my heart.

Jacqui was born in Rotterdam in 1960. In 1962 her family moved to London, where she grew up. At the age of forty six, she and her husband, along with five cats and three dogs moved to Argentina to take some time out of the rat race and to live a simpler life with better weather. There, she rekindled her desire to write, something that previously there had never been enough time for. Now, at the age of fifty two and a bit, she and her husband are moving to Ireland. This time with five dogs and two cats in tow. The weather...? 'What about us?' is her debut novel. 'Horizons', her first story, is in two parts - 'Beyond the Horizon' and 'Shifting Horizons'. Her most recent story - 'Mosaic' - is now available and will soon be published as a paper book too. All of her stories explore the theme of time and relationships from one angle or another, but her writing is not easily pigeonholed into one genre, as you will see as more of her work is published.
