Hi there! Welcome to swirl and spark. I’m so happy you stopped by!

This website is a compilation of my thoughts and dreams and everything in between. In other words, it’s my author site, but also a place where I can blog about things like writing, setting goals, and chasing dreams… and connect with anyone interested in that kind of stuff. So, if you’re wondering about the books I write, how I finally got published (after ten years!) or what it’s really like to live a writer’s life, grab a latte or power smoothie ~ whatever fuels you today. That’s what I’ll be doing! And by the way, I’m thrilled to introduce to you my middle grade novels, SPIN THE GOLDEN LIGHT BULB, FLIP THE SILVER SWITCH, and POP THE BRONZE BALLOON (August 4, 2020) the three books in the Crimson Five series. For more information on those, click here on The Crimson Five Books link or the one at the top of the page.

I hope you find some motivation while you’re here because if there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love inspiring my friends to make their dreams come true. No matter what your goal, no matter what your wish, know that it is possible and that you can make it happen. It took me so long to hold my first published books in my hands and if I can make my dream come true, so can you! So, are you ready to chat books and dreams? Me too!

❤ Jackie
