Meet Jackie

I’m Jackie Yeager, middle grade author and perpetual daydreamer. My imagination is always on overdrive, but my ideas usually turn into stories even though I wish I could turn them into inventions! I’m no inventor though so instead I write middle grade books about kids of the future who create incredible inventions.  

Looking for more info? Well…

I have a Masters degree in Education, live in Rochester, NY with my husband and two kids, and would live in a castle if I could. Hey, a girl’s gotta dream, right? 

When I’m not writing or living in my own fairy tale world, I spend my time taking pictures for Instagram, renovating our house, thinking up motivational quotes, reading, meeting friends for coffee, hanging out with my family, and thinking about our next trip to Disney World.

I love sweet cream in my coffee and I’m obsessed with smoothies. If you don’t believe me, check out my Instagram stories. I post way too many pictures of them! I’m also the former coach of a middle school Odyssey of the Mind team who once upon a time competed at the World Finals. They were the inspiration behind the Crimson Five books!
