About the Author

At age nine, Jackie began four years of living in the desert which surrounds Yuma, Arizona and there began a quiet passion for the beauty, great spaces and serenity of that environment. From there she lived in what sometimes seemed endless different states and two different countries until she finally found a lasting home in the great central valley of California. It was from there that she discovered Death Valley National Park which would draw her back again and again over the years. But it was only when she left academia that she could actually pack up her things and fulfill her dream of living there for a full winter. Death Valley: A Winter’s Journey is the story of that experience.

As an adult she passed many years centered on the roles of mother and wife, and then enjoyed a long career as a clinical psychologist and professor. Now she has begun her third career as an author and artist. While she has painted both the desert and the agriculture of the central valley for many years, it is now, with retirement that she can focus fully on writing and art.

I really enjoyed this book about a 'run-away' professor. Probably something that we all have thought of doing at times in our lives. Some of it was really funny and some was a bit contemplative about life in general, but all of it was well written and an easy read. Definitely learned a lot abou Death Valley that I didn't know before. I recommend it- you'll be glad you picked it up and read it.

Inspirational and funny! A great escape for those of us who cannot YET escape our busy lives to live out an old dream. It reminds us why it is important not to forget those dreams because we never know when we might get the opportunity to make it come true -- like this lucky author.
