Author, poet, artist.

Born in London, England, I now live in the USA. I lived in Maine for twelve years, a few years in California and now I live in Florida. I've seen quite a lot of the world since a child. Mostly around Europe. Later, I traveled alone to France, Spain, Greece, Cyprus, Africa, Turkey, Libya, Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Mexico and Canada.In my earlier days back in London, I loved a night out dancing at night clubs. As I evolved, I had a passion for cooking, herb/vege gardens, markets, Paris and fashion runway makes my arm hairs stand on end. I love the autumn colors and wonder why I live in Florida when that time of year comes around. I've dabbled with the piano, violin & flute and fluctuate between the classics and rock N

The Greek Seaman (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:31PM
Description: Description to The Greek Seaman novel. What is an eighteen year old newly wed doing on a massive merchant ship anyways? Hadn’t she gone to Greece on tour in a ballet as a dancer? These are questions, Katy asks herself while traveling the high seas with Don her chief officer husband. However, little do they know a smuggling ring is also on board for this ride, on a blue diamond exchange and when explosions and threats to sink the ship also happen, they must try to save themselves. Getting to know the smugglers, the Arabic and Pakistani deck hands and Don, the Greek Seaman is an exciting sea adventure with enough suspense and romance that will make you laugh and cry. It will take you on a voyage to experience the magnificent soothing wonders and beautiful scenery at sea, and take you through storms and hurricanes where Katy finds herself navigating through it with a seasick crew. From Piraeus, Greece, your visit the ports of Lebanon and Libya and enjoy the exotic magic of the bazaar. The bond between Don and Katy, in their ordeal at sea makes this a memorable story. Review: 5 Star Amazon. by Maggie T. Howlett I really enjoyed this read. It is light and easy to read but not lacking in entertainment and interest. I paricularly enjoyed being made a part of the story (or the feeling that I was) and also how discriptively it is written so that you can see the places and feel like you have visited them, which I find very important in a book. A good all round read! Very well written.

Jacqueline Howett is 90% done with Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout l Summary & Study Guide: This book gives me mix feelings. Its written in a unique style. Although at times depressing, it shows us what is behind the mask we wear for everyday survival. I can understand why it won awards. I have enjoyed reading it in stages, in between other books.

Jacqueline Howett Hi guys! A book recommendation.

This review is from: How To Be A Writer In The E-Age... And Keep Your E-Sanity! (Kindle Edition) by Catherine Ryan Hyde and Anne R. Allen.

Finally, here's an inspiring handy book for new writers to enjoy!

The title of this book sais it all! If you're just learning the ropes of the E-age, pick up this book for your E-desk, and be one step ahead of the game. There are some very useful tips, and some reference sections also proove to be handy for the more seasoned author, who might have forgotten some of the more solid basics of the writers trade while they went racing off into the E-age. The free upgrade version every six months is also good to know. Each topic is told in a easy, fun manner that's encouraging and inspiring. I also enjoyed reading those small sections written from personal experience, that give you some interesting pointers to think about concerning the good and the bad of the E-Age.
