The first delightful new book is called “Something about a Bear”. The tale depicts Jackie’s love of writing about Bears which first began many years before with her first book Bears, Bears and More Bears. Since then she has developed her ideas about writing, painting and looking and has thought about each page, the words and the bears for this book for some time. She began writing Something about a Bear in a beautiful garden in Worcestershire and has created stunning watercolour paintings that describe 8 bears from all over the world shown in their wild habitats. Black Bear, Polar Bear, Sloth Bear, Spectacled Bear, Sun Bear, Panda, Moon Bear, and Brown Bear. Jackie asks at the end of book "But which is the best bear of all? Your own teddy bear, of course!"
The second book she has produced is called Cat Walk. Those of you who follow Jackie on a regular basis will know of the strong bond that exists between Jackie and her feline friends. In this amazing book she has captured images of her cats as together they walk through the beautiful landscape of Pembrokeshire. Jackie has captured over 100 photographs telling their story of many walks with many cats who have been and still are a special part of her life.
Jackie says about the book "whenever I go into schools kids always ask which book I'm most proud of. I've never been able to answer that question until now. This is a cat book that's very different; it's not a book about cats it’s more about love." This book is truly magical. Her cats are a huge part of Jackie's life and they cast a spell that lets you peek into their world.
