Calvin & Hobbes

Jackie Kessler!

Welcome to FFF author Jackie Kessler who is now firmly among my favourite authors because HOTTER THAN HELL is one of the most fabulous books I’ve read. It’s one of those rare books I would read again because I enjoyed it so much.

 
Now for Jackie to tell us a little about herself!

 

1.     When did the dream of being a writer begin for Jackie Kessler?

 
When I was in college. Before that, I had my heart set on becoming a comic book artist. But once I was in college, I started taking creative writing seminars, and that’s when I started falling in love with the idea of writing stories instead of illustrating them. And then I promptly started working on my Great American Novel. Here it is, twenty years later (eek) and that book still isn’t published. (But a version of it is currently on submission. Wish me luck!) I didn’t get serious about wanting to write novels until 2003, and in 2004, I started learning (the hard way) about the business of writing. The third novel I wrote, HELL’S BELLES, sold in December 2005.

 

2.     What is would readers be surprised to learn about you?
