More About the Author
Her dancing aspirations flew out of the window after realising that her slightly chubby thighs were not ballerina material.
And although her acting roles were quite prolific she soon tired of being a supporting act (think tree, think pumpkin.)
A singer? Perhaps not...
It was aboard a ship, aged 13, whilst immigrating to Australia from the UK with her family that Jaci discovered her penchant for the written word. Having become infatuated with a fellow passenger, a Dutchman seven years her senior, who spent his days in the ship's library writing to his girlfriend back home, Jaci sat close by writing of their unrequited love and hoping he would notice her.
He didn't, and when her writings were discovered by her irate father Jaci was confined to her cabin for the remainder of the trip for being (you guessed it) a 'notorious exaggerator,' amongst other expletives.
But the penny had finally dropped... Yes, perhaps she was a notorious exaggerator, but she was very good at it! A writer was born!
However, as with most women - maturity brought reality: an education, a career in nursing, marriage, two children, and mortgages. You get the picture.
Fast forward twenty years. Now happily 'empty-nestled' on the Northern Beaches, Sydney, Australia, old marriage and career a distant memory, Jaci lives with the love of her life, husband Doug, and devotes her time to her beloved writing.
Her debut novel, 'Best Friends and Bastards' was released on Amazon in December 2011,and her second novel, 'The Girls' Weekend' was released in April 2012. Her latest novel, 'Penny Lane' is now available. Inspired by Jaci's love of the Beatles' music the novel was coincidentally released on the 50th anniversary of the Beatles first single release Love Me Do.
Jaci's work is interwoven with twists and turns, humour and compassion, intrigue and passion. She writes about relationships, about ordinary women facing extraordinary situations. About you, about me, about we, and about how we interrelate.
Top Customer Reviews
I'm sorry to say that this book was very amateurish. All of the background information was given at the beginning. The author wrote the thoughts of every character in a scene instead of writing a scene from the perspective of one character and then showing the other characters' thoughts through their actions or words. When we know what everyone thinks, there's no tension in the story.
The story lines were also implausible. For 90% or more of the book, two of the characters are self-centered and bitchy, then suddenly they become forgiving and reasonable. Sure, this happens in other books, but it's the result of character growth, which isn't shown in this story. The characters are exactly the same for the entire story and then suddenly, they change.
One character's son is living in a cult. She finds him there, he won't leave with her. She goes home and tells her husband and he gets mad at her for looking for the son. So, for several months, she does nothing to find her son. But, one day her husband and one of the other friends goes to get him and they are able to get him out of the cult in a day. Really?

Like watching a chick flick! I read it last summer and then again this summer. Perfectly captured the personalities present in every circle of girlfriends...Published 20 months ago by Joe Peterich
Rather hard to follow-jumping from one character to another too often. It carried me away from reality-nice escape reading. Dicey!!!Published on March 25, 2013 by mary hood
I liked this book because it shows that despite the back stabbing, the lying, the cheating with each others spouses, true friendship should prevail despite differences.Published on March 5, 2013 by Stacey
