How many times has LIFE left you asking – or screaming:
“WHAT THE F*CK ?!”

What is your story, Jacqueline?
As writers I don’t think we ever really give ourselves the credit we deserve when it comes to our achievements; not least because of our “introverted” selves, but because, if you’re anything like me, you just do it: it’s part of you.
When I look back to who I was as a writer, to where I am today, I feel such a huge sense of gratitude. For what I’ve created and are currently creating; for what I’ve learned and continue to learn; for the communities that I’m part of and continue to develop. It really is such a joy.
As an author, I’ve published two books, with a third due for publication this year (2023). My first novel – which was a delight to write – is ready for an agent and publisher. Currently, I write for various publications around the world, as a columnist, blogger or contributor.
My author coaching hat I can’t help but wear, especially when I hear of people with new ideas for stories. And my inner ‘editor’ is always looking for ways to improve the narrative or quality of writing, and help others.
I’ve come to enjoy experimenting with different forms over the last few years – which has led me into creating more poetry and building my skills, including fiction, short stories and screen play. My current projects include working as an associate producer on a documentary and delving into the world of TV writing.
Writing has always been a love of mine; so, with that in mind, it seems only natural that at some point, I’d become an author.
Early 2017 marked the birth of my first book #WTF is happening with my life? A guide to getting your sh*t together : an honest, to the point, amusing self help guide for women.
Why this book?
Because life can be a difficult beast to navigate if we don’t understand it. For some of us, there reaches a point where daily questions of ‘What the f*uck?’, become so consuming, so tiring, so depressing, that we have to stop: stop and look at what is actually going on, and why our life is, the way it is.
The essence of this book was born out of sheer desire and passion to help others; to share what I know, and to encourage others to avoid taking the path of resistance through life. And for me, that path had been mastering both the creation of, and surrender into, life’s drama and bullsh*t – and a complete avoidance of taking responsibility for my life. There is merit in the saying, ”You can run, but you can’t hide”, and from a woman who has lived through it, being bitten in the arse hurts (trust me).
We all want to live our best lives and be the best versions of ourselves, but some of us just need a little guidance on how. Which is why I’ve written this book: to show others how.
