JACKIE BARBOSA always wanted to be a writer, but she took a few detours on the road to publication, including a stint in academia (she holds an MA in Classics from the University of Chicago and was a Mellon Fellowship recipient) and many years as a technical writer/instructional designer for a data processing company.
She still holds her day job in instructional design, but her true passion is writing steamy romances–both historical and contemporary. She has published several short stories and novellas with epublisher Cobblestone Press. Her first print release, Behind the Red Door, was released by Kensington Books in May 2009.
Jackie learned to believe in love at first sight when she met the man of her dreams twenty years ago and to believe in happily ever after when she married him. She lives in Southern California with her family and an ever-changing menagerie of pets. Please visit her website at www.jackiebarbosa.com.
