After leaving the corporate world, Jacqueline Luckett took a creative writing class on a dare, from herself, and began writing short stories and poetry and never looked back. She is the author of two novels, Passing Love (Grand Central Publishing, 2012, described by People Magazine as “beautifully written and filled with vibrant scenes of Paris in its Jazz Age and today.”) and Searching for Tina Turner (Grand Central Publishing, 2012). Her essay, “Traveling with Ghosts,” is part of the anthology, Best Women’s Travel Writing 2011. The Bay Area native lives in Oakland, but travels to nurture her passion for photography and exotic foods.
