Jacqueline's a writer, costume designer, and lover of beautiful things.

Writing generally involves me sitting on my bed with my laptop, my dog, and a LOT of tea and chocolate chips. From there I can dive right into my imagination. I am my biggest obstacle, which is no small challenge, but one I can overcome with perseverance.(less)

“People think it's the fear of falling, but it's not. It's the fear of falling combined with the desire to fall [...] the more we value something, the more we fear its loss.”
Jacqueline Firkins, How Not to Fall in Love

“What if love wasn’t always a choice? What if it just happened? Like chickenpox, mildew, or Wednesday?”
Jacqueline Firkins, Hearts, Strings, and Other Breakable Things

“That’s the hardest thing about loving someone. You only get to choose how you love them, not how they love you back.”
Jacqueline Firkins, Hearts, Strings, and Other Breakable Things
