Jacqueline Abrahams is the author alter ego for an ordinary mum to three children (two human and one canine). Born in South Africa, she now calls Sydney, Australia her home.

A collector all things books and bookish, she in an avid reader and has a tiny obsession with filling bookshelves. The Scared Series is her debut series.

Why do I read? Thats easy. There's no better form of escapism. There are places I go and people I visit in books for every varying mood and emotion I have. I wrote my debut novel because I wanted to tell someone else's story, more escapism. But the story told me in the end. I just manned the keyboard!

Everyone has a story that they can tell, but I think being a writer means you have taken the step to bare your soul to all who'll have it.(less)
