Jackie Briggs MartinWelcome

Thanks for coming to my site. Here you will find the basic information about my writing life, my books, and information about my author appearances, and other bits and pieces about writing and reading. I do maintain a blog (actually two) and if you visit those you are apt to hear about where I've been and up-to-date information about my books and inspiration for writing.
