Jackie Buxton


I write because there is no better feeling than inventing an intriguing group of characters and watching as they live, grow and often fight themselves out of whatever this harsh, but sometimes uplifting, life has thrown at them. I find the human psyche to be both amusing and fascinating - particularly when threatened - and if I didn’t use the writing way to channel my observations, there would be no room in my head for the practicalities of life.

I'm lucky to be involved in many different areas of writing:

* teacher of creative writing in Rossett Adult Education
* freelance teacher and mentor in novel writing
* editor of short stories and novels across the range from sense-check through to fine edit and proof read
* writer of a double page spread for Chase Magazine, the bi-monthly glossy for the Rotherham Advertiser
* keen blogger with a few prized reader awards
* author of Tea & Chemo, a self-help memoir
* fiction writer with a novel: Glass Houses to be published June 2016 by Urbane Publications and a second: The Tree House, in progress
* fiction writer with short stories published in the anthologies: Seaglass, They Lied! and Stories for Homes as well as Chase Magazine and on-line as competition winners.

When I'm not writing, I'm reading (surprise surprise), running, cycling or chilling. I live in Yorkshire with my long-suffering husband and two teenage daughters.
