Annie and Jak - mother and wayward son.


Jak is playing silly buggers when he steps into a nest of jack jumpers.

The first sting in the tale of his life trajectory.


Annie believes her destiny was unwittingly ordained through her father's deception,

long ago in the wake of Mahatma Gandhi's assassination.


Separate, violent events also sabotage their lives and each is beset by guilt. They hide

from the world and each other for seven years, Jak in India, Annie in Tasmania.

Unpredictable, like bloody jack jumpers.


When Jak rings Annie about a plan, born from his childhood dream to sculpt a café in

the abandoned granite quarry on Tasmania's Freycinet Peninsular, she realizes he needs her. 


Will she exonerate and assist him?  Or destroy him?

About the Author

The author of Jackjumper, Jane Naqvi, lives in Tasmania, between bushland and sea with her husband, Ike, and two ponies. She had a long career as a teacher and she gave it up to travel interstate and overseas each year to visit her children and seven grandchildren, to ramble with friends over long and winding tracks and to spend time in India with husband, Ikram. When away, Jane took photographs and wrote notes - and on returning home she fictionalised many real-life experiences into stories. Without any chances of travelling in 2020, she connected her stories, drove them up a notch, and Jackjumper emerged from its hiding place on the East Coast of Tasmania.
