JACKIE KRAMER Jackie has been writing most of her life; everything from Star Trek fan fiction to romance to SF/horror. She’s been lucky Jackie Kramerenough to sell everything she’s submitted, but never gets over the awe she feels when someone actually likes what she’s written.

In her spare time, Jackie enjoys Celtic music, studying ancient/medieval history, and loves to collect fantasy creatures. She reads anything, including cereal boxes in a pinch. She plans to continue writing until they pry her keyboard out of her cold, dead hands. www.jackiekramer.com

  1. Glad you like the name, Margaret. Hope Santa brings you lots of goodies, unless you’ve been naughty this year, in which case you’ve already gotten your treats! (winking slyly)

  2. We’re a very diversified group, hence the wide range of topics on our blogs. You just never know what we’ll come up with next. Heck. WE never know what we’ll come up with next. 🙂

    Thanks for dropping by, BAV.

  3. Just visiting for the first time. I enjoyed the reviews by Robyn Daniels. I may just have to check out a book that makes me hoot with laughter and also sob. I am selfishly glad to know these well-read and savvy writers are as disenchanted as I with the fall shows. Blue Bloods wins a ribbon, but Harry’s Law has definitely crowded the stage with characters I am not sure I will like. The only positive aspect of a season like this is that it will send me to my writing desk, the siren’s call of which sounds ever more faintly at night as I grow older.

    • Welcome, Pegna! Robyn is just about the biggest reader I know, and that’s hard to say in a group full of writers, because it’s our avid reading that leads us to writing in the first place.

      My retired-cop husband LOVES Blue Bloods for the procedural stuff, but I love it for the characters. The family dynamics, the partnerships, the odd and sad and angry people they come across in the course of their day . . . Exactly what I look for in a show.

      You and me both on going to the desk! It’s a hard habit for me to break, watching TV that’s not great, so I’ve been picking up the Kindle instead, but I’m trying to create the habit of writing more. Good luck with that!
