Jaqui writes for young children. She loves writing picture books and early chapter books. Her ideas and topics come from her own family life, friendships, and her previous jobs and travels.
She has worked as a corporate lawyer and an international politics analyst. She has lived all over Australia, in London, Hong Kong, New England (USA) and Montreal, Canada. She speaks German, French, reasonable Mandarin Chinese and a smattering of Japanese.
The most mischievous member of her family is Maple, the Scottish Terrier. She loves playing tennis and walking the many bush trails around Sydney harbour.
Jaqui is a member of SCBWI, Writing NSW, Creative Kids Tales and The Duck Pond.
