Author Biography

I was born Jacqueline Pansy in 1953 to parents who were traveling with a small circus. The name of the Circus we traveled with was: Clyde Beatty Shows and the movie “Ring of Fire” featured this circus.
After graduating from high school I took dance and ended up having a nine year career as a dancer which included a USO tour for our troops. God Bless our Troops for keeping us safe!

Writing and illustrating children’s stories was something I started for my nieces and nephews. It always touches my heart and I feel humbled when parents tell me that their child will choose my books to read over their other choices, again and again.

I have graduated to writing chapter books for ages 9 to 12 and they have become my passion. I have written a book for the over 40 crowd called, "Menopausalgodzilla". It will have you laughing out loud as you relate. I have co-authored a book, “Fiction and Fact; The Prevaricators Purloined Almanac” with my dad, Gilly Earl Hughes, very enlightening.

I also have what people refer to as a real job. I work at GGRM Law Firm in Las Vegas, Nevada, as an assistant claims specialist. I refer to that job as a hobby!

Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite

Bubbles is a sad little fish because he has a disfigured tail. The other sea creatures tease Bubbles about this as it prevents him from swimming fast and playing games. Pickles, an electric eel and Bubbles’ best friend, and Kama the mermaid go to see Professor Opus. He is a smart octopus who helps others. Professor Opus takes them to the junkyard where humans dump their junk. They search the trash, hoping to find something that can be substituted for a tail. Shredder appears, determined to finish eating Bubbles, and even sings about it. When the others try to stop him, he chases them, too. Jacqueline Pansy is the author of this charming children’s book.

Shredder Ate My Tail is a book that is sure to delight young kids. This short story is a lively read with wonderful characters and an exciting plot. Shredder is so mean spirited, and Jacqueline Pansy wrote great descriptions of this shark and the scary adventure that Bubbles and his friends experienced. She built up the fear that Shredder put into the sea creatures with his terrifying dialogue and song. The colourful illustrations, also sketched by Jacqueline Pansy, nicely matched the story. It has a good lesson and moral about being kind to others. Bubbles and his adorable friends will be loved by children. I found the story creative and know the author will gain a following of avid young readers.
