About Me featuring Jacquelyn Frank

Please welcome author Jaquelyn Frank to DIK!
Jacki is the author of the Nightwalker series which includes the books Jacob, Gideon, Elijah, Damien and the soon to be published Noah (Sept. 2).

Jacquelyn has recently moved to the Western North Carolina mountain area around Asheville. After a lifetime of striving to be good enough to be published, her first year as a published author has come and gone with great success and many blessings. With four sisters and other family scattered up and down the Eastern Seaboard, and a history of living all across the USA herself, she still always finds ways to give a nod to her native New York in her work. Jacquelyn lives with her seven ‘children’, a septet of male domestic shorthaired cats whose personalities have often inspired aspects of her characters.

A former Sign Language Interpreter and substitute teacher, she is a powerful advocate of reading and writing. She is known for her persistent gifts of books to her nieces and nephews, as well as all the other children in her life, in an effort to see them love both as much as she does. She believes there is nothing more rewarding than the imagination and all it inspires, and nothing more tragic than illiteracy.

Favorite Reading Position
Curled up in the corner of the couch.

Best love song
Bell, Book and Candle by Eddi Reader

Favorite Heroine
Wonder Woman

Author everyone loves but you don’t
Laurel K Hamilton

If you could be in one book/series/world which would you pick
Christine Feehan’s “Dark” world

How old is your inside voice
40, just like the outside

Favorite sex song
Enigma’s Carly Don’t Be Sad

If you could be a hero who would you be
Jaimie Summers. She is very real and very human and it’s her morals and conscience that lead her to succeed. She always does the right thing, no matter what it costs her.

What heroine is most like you
Jaimie Summers. See above. The only difference is I am far more jaded than she is by the things I’ve seen.

What heroine would you like to be
Wonder Woman. She is invincible and stunningly athletic. She is truly a lone figure without need of a man. And she is powerful enough that she can afford to continue being naïve and innocent about the world around her.

Boxers, Briefs, boxer briefs, kilt (I say we add commando)
Kilt has a special place in my heat, then boxer briefs. They just hug everything so nicely…

Favorite book set on a tropical island
Jane Austen’s best, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Sense and Sensibility, Northanger Abbey, Persuasion…

What hero is most like your significant other
The invisible man. hehehehehe

What hero would you like to be your significant other
Gerard Butler’s Leonidas from 300.

If you were stuck on a desert island what 3 things would you bring
Gerard Butler, my books, my laptop.

Favorite drink to bring to the DIK party
Pina Colada!

Ruth Schaller said...

Hey Jocelynn -- we've got something in common -- we both love Wonder Woman! I have the entire series on DVD!!!

Sarai said...

Tracy said...

Katie Reus said...

I hope you plan on sharing Gerard!! Yum :)

jessewave said...

Hi Jacquelyn
Welcome. I hope you have a lot f fun over the next 3 days. Gerard Butler hmmm :)

I wonder why Wonder Woman resonates with most of us? I too picked her because of the fact that she could do anything as a superhero and kick the guys you know where LOL

Jacquelyn Frank said...

I am SO not sharing Gerry. He's monogamous you know And I have to say I make the best Pina Colada's in town. As for our dear, dear NOAH...I ain't telling. But I'm sure you can find some silly bitch of a reviewer out there whose blown the whole plot. That was what I got to wake up to this week. But I won't say who or where. I won't make it easy for you.

Did someone say Pina Coladas?! Just point me in the right direction and I'll be there! LOL!

Pamk said...

why in the hell would a reviewer give away spoilers. I thought that was a nono. Since I don't review I might be wrong but when I checked into doing them they said that wasn't to happen. Good think I don't read reviews. I am so looking forward to Noah.

Stephanie*magic* said...

Thats just wrong of whoever spilled the beans already!!
I dont wanna go look.
No way am I gonna spoil Noah!!
Take care hon!

Lesa~Dragon said...

Hi Jacquelyn,
I'm looking forward to Noah, though I have not read the other in the series - YET! A dear friend of mine turned me on to them and they wait patiently on my TBR shelf. It's a really big shelf!

Oooh... I attended the "Cover" workshop at RWA National with Kate Duffy and was excited to see the progression of the cover for your new series. Patiently waiting for the new series to be released too.

Thank you,

Christine said...

Hi Jacki!
I think its awesome that your an advocate of literacy. I just picked up some info on becoming a volunteer literacy tutor in my area. Unfortunately, I won't be able to do the training right now, but I hope to do it in a few months. I can't imagine not being able to read!

Mmm! Pina Coladas!
