About me

Location Indianapolis, Indiana
Introduction Alice began writing poems and fictional stories while still in elementary school. Writing became her lifelong dream, a dream encouraged by the three aunts who played a pivotal role in her young years. Much of those early years were spent with the aunts in Fairmont and Grantown, West Virginia, where reading was Jackson’s favorite past time, along with playing baseball in the ‘holler’ below her Aunt Alice’s home. After retiring as a journalist, she began writing her first novel, Good-Bye Gadsden, set in World War II, about a young man coming of age in wartime, and the traumatic impact of the war on his family and their small southern community. That was followed by Deadline in Dallas, a thriller whose protagonist is a Dallas news anchor pursuing a story of drug smuggling, money laundering, and murder that leads back to the man to whom she is engaged, the mayor of Dallas. Alice is currently working on several other projects, including a children’s story set in Morocco.
