Jacqueline Hopper resides in her father’s boyhood village in Atlantic Canada. During her free time, when she’s not catering to her cats with treats and cuddles, she reads to gain knowledge, cleans her apartment to maintain order, and writes for pleasure. Though she’s been writing from the age of ten, the publication of her short story Listening To Crows was her first step toward becoming a full-time author. You can find Jacqueline’s books on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B007BFFPX4
