Hello everyone! I am Jacqlyn. I am 47 years old and love to write my stories. Hope you enjoy them!
Here are a few things about me that some may want to know and others may want to toss...your choice!
WORKS IN PROGRESS -
Just know that I'm working on a story. I have very little time these days to devote to writing, but it is still something I make time to do.
My loves are: My God; the Three in One - the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; my family - husband George (also 47), three sons; Kyle (26), Shawn (24), and Matthew (22); daughter-in-law Pam (married to Shawn), daughter-in-law, Danielle (married to Kyle); my two grandchildren, Trinity Beth and Seth Mitchell, my parents - both deceased, my brother and his family, my husband's family, and my country.
My husband is an ordained minister, but is not currently pastoring a church; he is the project manager at a major contracting company in Raleigh. We have just bought and had built our first (and hopefully last) new home. I wish you could all come over and we could talk fanfiction, Gerry, or anything else that comes up! That would just be awesome!
My oldest son works with my husband as the HR guy. He is married and they both live here with us. He is a computer whiz, a great teacher, and a great singer.
My middle son also works as a contractor with my husband, he is married and he and his wife have my only grandchildren - Trinity Beth on November 18, 2007 and Seth Mitchell was born on January 25, 2009. What a joy they both are!! They rent the apartment that is our basement.
My youngest son is currently pursuing a law degree. His classes are online for now...seems to suit him. He has wanted to be a lawyer since he was in elementary school, and he is taking the steps needed (considering our limited financial resources) to get what he wants. There are also some personal issues he's facing right now, so please pray for him.
I enjoy writing, it relaxes me and allows me to escape the real world. I do put myself into my characters...can't help it. I also enjoy reading and reviewing. I seldom criticize other people's writing styles or content, because what they write represents who they are in some form or another.
I personally don't care for foul language and don't write it, but I am not going to tell someone else that they need to stop writing it into their story to please me. I don't write nor care for premarital sex scenes, but who am I to tell someone else they shouldn't write them.
My hobbies: Writing phanfics, reading (historical and paranormal romance, fantasy), playing the piano, singing, designing media for my church on the computer; watching movies with my sons; watching Carolina Panthers football with my hubby (GO PANTHERS! Even when they are struggling!)
Below is the URL to a youtube video that iluvmyphantom found - this is my vision of Lavanya in "DARK SIDE OF THE GLASS".
Also for "DARK SIDE OF THE GLASS", here is a fanart drawing of Erik and Lavanya also done by iluvmyphantom:
Below is a picture of a photoshop take I did on Erik in "Dark Side of the Glass".
Below is the URL for a picture that iluvmyphantom drew for my story "ALL I KNOW OF LOVE". She has done a wonderful job, and with her permission, I posted it here.

This is a link to her version of Miss Darcy (Christine) from "Show Me the Way to Love".
About my writings:
Mlle.Fox has graciously agreed to be my Beta...I cannot thank her enough for her friendship and wonderfully quirky sense of humor. She makes me laugh and smile.
My Erik will be Gerik - enough said there. (Love ya, Gerry!)
I was against Christine/Erik pairings, for the longest time, I felt that Christine was just not good enough for him, but I have since altered that thought process, and have written several stories with Christine (as I feel she should be) as Erik's love interest. She will never be a child in my stories. Erik is a grown man whose interest is not perverted; therefore, my Christine will always be a woman above the age of 18.
I also write Erik/OW stories, just to change things up a bit. I am debating on the Erik/Meg pairing...that may be coming in the near future.
I have written both historical stories (19th century) and modern day. I like the modern day because I am familiar with it, but learning about the 19th century is very interesting - I have not done any other genres, but that doesn't mean I won't.
A non-murderous Erik, I don't like the idea of Erik being a murderer, my Erik's will always be innocent of that crime...he will have killed in self-defense, or because he had no choice...BIG DIFFERENCE!
NO WIG NECESSARY - my Erik will always have a head full of wonderfully wavy, brown to ebony hair; varied lengths.
Tragedy caused deformities - My Erik will always have suffered some tragic event that causes the scars on the right side of his face...he will have been born perfect, or the deformity may have been caused by some act of his mother while he was in her womb. This allows for his offspring to be perfect.
Love scenes - I do write explicit love scenes; for making love is a very passionate and explicit act. However, I do not condone premarital sex; therefore, before my Erik and his lady love engage in the bliss of making love, they will be properly wed. My belief on the act of sexual intercourse - God designed it to be enjoyed by married couples. This is laid out in His word; therefore, I hold to that. It's main purpose is for procreation; however, He does tell us "Do not deprive one another except with consent for a time, that you may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again so that Satan does not tempt you because of your lack of self-control." 1 Cor. 7:5
MY LIKES - FROM MOST LIKED TO LEAST LIKED:
Actors - Gerry Butler (a great actor and an even better person - and GORGEOUS!), Nathan Fillion, Johnny Depp, Colin Firth, Gary Oldman, Clive Owen, Antonio Banderas, Dermot Mulroney...
Actresses - Kate Beckinsale, Keira Knightley, Sandra Bullock, Dame Judy Dench, Julie Andrews, Minnie Driver
Singers/groups - In Contemporary Christian: Phillips, Craig & Dean; Sidewalk Prophets, Seventh Day Slumber, Tenth Avenue North, Kutless (their new music), Chris Sligh, Chris August, TobyMac...the list is endless . In the secular scene I like: The Script, Boys Like Girls, Leona Lewis, Josh Groban, Lady Antebellum, Hinder (clean version),
Movies - 300, Phantom of the Opera (Anything with GERRY BUTLER in it!), Pirates of the Caribbean (1 , 2, & 3), Underworld (1 & 2), X-Men (all of them), Star Trek (any and all), romantic comedies, James Bond Movies, Batman Begins, Classic comedies with Jerry Lewis, Danny Kaye, and Abbott and Costello.
T.V. - Castle, Dancing with the Stars, Bones, The Finder, The Voice, American Idol, and the NFL (yes, you read it correctly, the National Football League).
Books - I love to read and my favorite genres are fantasy (Dragon Age and Dungeon and Dragon type stuff), and romance (mostly paranormal and some historical). My favorite authors include, but are not limited to, the following: R. A. Salvatore, David Gaider, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christine Feehan (The Dark Series), Jacqueline Franks (Jacob, Gideon, Elijah, Damien, and Noah), Kresley Cole, Kathryn Smith, and many more.
My dislikes:Cauliflower, brussel sprouts, sardines, anchovies, liver, chitterlings (YUCK), grits and others that I will not mention; movies that only have blood and gore and no plot; actors with attitudes and god complexes - Russell Crowe, Alec Baldwin, Tom Cruise, George Clooney, etc. or those who think they are "all that and a bag of chips" - I am sure there are more dislikes that I have, but that will do for now.
I am sure there are those who will disagree with some of the things I have said. You're welcome to your opinion.
Thanks for getting to know me my lovelies!
