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 scrolling through pictures of royal fashion; 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!
