Author Biography

I am C.C. Jackson, I am an Indie Writer and the author of Stay, a paranormal romance novel for young adults.

I have been married to an awesome guy for almost 13 years. I have three not so little boys. They range in age from 10 to 18. They have been my biggest inspiration in my writing. From watching the three of them and their friends grow up, I have been able to dream up all sorts of wonderful things.

I love reading. I would spend my entire life with my nose in a book if I could. I am partial to romance and suspense, but I will read almost anything.

I hate to clean, especially the dishes. My husband is a way better cook than me. I am a recovering Coca Cola addict. I crave it ALL the time, but I am trying to avoid it.

I love yoga and I love to do anything outdoors. We do a lot of fishing, hiking, and camping. Of course every time that we go camping I say never gain. We haven't had much luck with camping but we keep trying.

I like all types of music, but I am usually the last one to discover new stuff. Maybe you guys can help me out with that. I love Boys Like Girls, Fall Out Boy, Greenday, anything like that really.

I rarely watch TV, but I make an exception for True Blood and sometimes for American Idol. It's not that I don't approve of watching TV, it's because I can never get on one. There is usually a game being played or a football game being watched on them. Maybe that's why I read so much.

    Book Review

Reviewed by Daylin M. for Readers' Favorite

In the novel Stay, by C.C. Jackson, Callie is shocked when she is ripped from her home in Louisiana in the middle of the night by a mysterious, muscular man. He takes her to a city named Petrona, of which she has no recollection, and is told that she is the queen. The man who took her from her home tells her that they are meant to be together, that he wishes she could remember their time together, and that he loves her deeply; but still Callie cannot remember. She learns that she isn't even human; in fact she is a fairy. Her journey throughout the book is one that requires strength, braveness, and curiosity.

Stay is a wonderful novel with an exceptional plot line. I loved the book dearly. However, there are a few editing mistakes, and it could have been much longer. In fact, I wish it had been developed by Jackson into perhaps a 300-400 page novel. More background information is definitely needed about Callie's parents and her normal, human life. But, Stay is still an amazing novel. This book is full of adventure and romance! The magical and sci-fi elements add a lot of fun and excitement, and the girl power makes me feel like I can take on the world. This is a book for teenagers and adults alike. C.C. Jackson is a genius, and I promise if you buy this book, you will not regret it! Take it to the beach, your couch, wherever, but read it!
