Angelica R. Jackson
Angelica R. Jackson, in keeping with her scattered Gemini nature, has published articles on gardening, natural history, web design, travel, hiking, and local history. Other interests include pets, reading, green living, and cooking for food allergies (the latter not necessarily by choice, but she’s come to terms with it). Ongoing projects include short fiction, poetry, novels, art photography, and children’s picture books.
In 2012, she started Pens for Paws Auction, which features critiques and swag from agents and authors to raise money for a no-kill, cage-free cat sanctuary called Fat Kitty City. She’s also been involved with capturing the restoration efforts for Preston Castle (formerly the Preston School of Industry) in photographs and can sometimes be found haunting its hallways.
An incurable joiner, she is a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (where she serves as Illustrator Coordinator for her local chapter), is an alumna of the group blog Operation Awesome, and debuted with the collection of authors known as The Fearless Fifteeners.
She shares a home in California's Gold Country with a husband, two rescued Griffon Fauve de Bretagne sisters, and a reformed-feral tabby, and far too many books (if that's even possible). She is the author of Crow's Rest, a darkly funny young adult urban fantasy, and her photos are collected in Capturing The Castle: Images of Preston Castle (2006-2016)
