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!
