Jacky Gray's first career was engineering and after 23 years writing software for telephone exchanges, she spent 10 years teaching children, occasionally introducing them to the joy of mathematics.
She lives in the Midlands with her husband (children having flown the nest), where she enjoys walking in nature and any kind of live entertainment. She watches a lot of movies and some great TV shows like Merlin, Robin Hood, Dr Who, Ashes to Ashes and Being Human. She also listens to a lot of Journey and Queen and reads (apologies to the adverb police) voraciously, especially Lee Child, Suzanne Collins, Jodi Picoult, Stephen King, George RR Martin and Wilbur Smith. But her favourite author will always be the master of history, Bernard Cornwall.
Jacky is a member of the World Wise Writer's group - talented ladies committed to engaging, first-class stories.
