About Me

Jaclyn M. Hawkes grew up in Utah with 6 sisters, 4 brothers and any number of pets. (It was never boring!) She got a bachelor’s degree, had a career and traveled extensively before settling down to her life’s work of being the mother of four magnificent and sometimes challenging children. She loves shellfish, the out of doors, the youth and hearing her children laugh. She and her fine husband, their family, and their sometimes very large pets, now live in a mountain valley in northern Utah, where it smells like heaven and kids still move sprinkler pipe.

The world needs more knights in shining armor and stemware at breakfast!

It's been a week. Holy Moly! I'm thinking of getting another "I survived" T-shirt. The only thing is, no matter how hard I pedalled, it was relatively thankless and I'm sure that I'm even further behind for all of my efforts. (Whining, whining. Aaahhh!)
So... I've been thinking. You know that old piece of advice about using the nice sheets and wearing nasty underwear because life is short? Okay, so it's not a direct quote, but you know what I mean. Well, I always use the nice sheets because, well, duh! (Please don't tell my children that I said that word.) And my derwear isn't truly negotiable, but today, I used the stemwear for breakfast! It was positively liberating!
And, guess what outlandish thing I'm going to do next! I'm going into my secret chamber and I'm going to fire up that magical fairy writing implement(my laptop). I'm going to transport myself into the fourteenth century and hang with with Sir Peyton Wolfgar, hunky warrior of the kingdom and his intrepid love, Chantaya Kincraig! They are so much more fun than reality!
In case you weren't aware, I'm working on my first medieval book. I think you'll love it! I do! I've decided that the world needs more knights in shining armor. And stemware at breakfast. Life IS short, even when the week feels like a year. Maybe tomorrow morning I'll propose a toast! Jaclyn
