J. Leigh Jackson published her first suspense novel Dark Wings in 2020. Always an avid reader of mystery novels and literary classics, it proved only natural that in college she sought a bachelor’s degree in English and a master’s degree in communication. After several years of teaching others how to write, she decided the time had come for her to pick up the pen. Drawing inspiration from art, travel and nature, Jackson savors snapshots of seemingly ordinary moments trusting her imagination to fill in the pages with the rest.
Born in Virginia, she carries her southern roots near to her heart and holds deep gratitude for the opportunity to have lived in many towns across the United States. Currently, she resides in Southern California with her husband, their two children and a mini Aussie with a not-so-mini personality.
