Jacquie lives in Central Queensland, Australia, where it's always hot and humidity constantly coats the skin, summer or winter.

After her profession as an accountant almost killed her (with mind-numbing boredom), she is on permanent hiatus.

She now spends her time wrapped up in her imagination, creating characters, exploring alternative realities, and falling in love with a host of mouth-watering heroes who occupy her mind at first, then eventually her books.

Jacquie has a business degree, has studied post-graduate writing, editing and publishing at The University of Queensland and earned a Master of Letters from Central Queensland University.

But all that means is that she's super-dedicated to writing the best books she can for readers to e

“I’ve been able to see all that I’ve needed, my love: your kindness, your compassion, your tenderness, your love, and your soul. These are all I care about.
Of course you do and I don’t expect anything different from you. But next time, I will give you more. You’ll see the colours of every season.”
Jacquie Underdown, The Paler Shade Of Autumn

“Cause and effect, in the Buddhist sense, though. Any action you undertake creates a seed that will sprout when the conditions are right, creating a good or bad result."
"Do you believe in it?"
He doesn’t allow even a pause. “Very much so.”

“Imagination is like a muscle. I found out that the more I wrote, the bigger it got.”
Philip José Farmer

“It seems that if I am afraid, then I am “stuck” with fear. But in fact I am chained to the fear only so long as I am trying to get away from it. On the other hand, when I do not try to get away I discover that there is nothing “stuck” or fixed about the reality of the moment.”
Alan W. Watts, Wisdom Of Insecurity: A Message for an Age of Anxiety

“a man does not really begin to be alive until he has lost himself, until he has released the anxious grasp which he normally holds upon his life, his property, his reputation and position.”
Alan W. Watts, Become What You Are

“Self-consciousness is a stoppage because it is like interrupting a song after every note so as to listen to the echo, and then feeling irritated because of the loss of rhythm.”
Alan W. Watts, Become What You Are

“Whether we like it or not, change comes, and the greater the resistance, the greater the pain. Buddhism perceives the beauty of change, for life is like music in this: if any note or phrase is held for longer than its appointed time, the melody is lost. Thus Buddhism may be summed up in two phrases: “Let go!” and “Walk on!” Drop the craving for self, for permanence, for particular circumstances, and go straight ahead with the movement of life.”
Alan W. Watts, Become What You Are
