About Jackie Holiday:
Jackie Holiday was born the fourth of six children. If given the opportunity to meet Jackie Holiday, if only for a moment, you would never forget it! There is nothing predictable about Jackie, or Jackie’s stories. Jackie has a deep love for language, history, and the arts. Jackie Holiday holds a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering and is an accomplished foil fencer. Jackie has a special talent of incorporating bits and pieces of an amazing life into the lives of Jackie’s characters. When asked about accomplishments, Holiday didn’t care to enumerate a long list of academic awards, patents, copyrights, and winning a beauty contest; instead, Jackie said, “I’ve always done my best to be good, and to be kind to people, that’s what’s most important when we’re writing our own stories. It’s much harder to be a hero than a villain. My motto is: Love others, and love yourself. I’m just happy knowing that I’ve tried hard to be good, and that I’ll continue trying to do my best.
