A Mother and Grandmother, Jackie, has a lifetime of experience as a horse trainer, youth adviser, and horse show judge. She and her husband live on a small farm in rural Ohio where they share their little slice of heaven with three horses, a rescue dog, and a calico barn cat.  Visiting new locations, and meeting new people is something she still enjoys. Jackie’s  travels are reflected in her writing. Backyard Horse Tales documents some of those travels from an equine point of view.

“Uncharted Storms” is a collection of short stories that Jackie published with the YA readers in mind, but adults will also enjoy the read.

Jackie uses the pen name J. M. Anton for her adult offerings. “Fateful Waters” is the first book of the “Troubles in Love-Land” series and is a contemporary romance. The author has thrown in the old mail order bride tale with a modern update. Book two of the series “Panhandle Mayhem” continues to follow the lives of Lexie and Melinda. There are also plenty of twists and turns, danger and heartbreak, and to top it off we have a trio of criminals to deal with. Book Three “Firestorms of the Heart” will be released in the summer of 2016 by Half Appy Press.

“Wind River Refuge’ is a fast paced mystery/thriller with enough romance woven in to win the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards top honor in the Romance Category. You will love Casey in “Cassandra: Night Shades.” Casey’s tale made its debut on March 21st of 2016. Keep an eye on this blog for excerpts, contests, release dates, and more.

    Jackie I notice that you went to school in the Texas Panhandle and I was wondering where. Also have you ever seen the video of the man and his mare that did dessage to music. I think he was from Sweden. But she also died in a paddack accident also. Sorry is I can find the video I will try to send it if you are interested. Blu Hors Matine was her name.

    To tell everyone something about me. My family are origin from Venezuela where both my great grandfather was the ambassador to the United States and my grandfather was the Vice Consul to the US. Also I’m the second niece to Veloz and Yolanda a famous dancing team that were in the Pride of the Yankees and also were in Life in 1930. My dad was in the Navy during WWII as a flight instructor when I was born at a Naval Air Station. I have loved horse almost all my life and have raised many babies colts. When I got my first mare I decided to start showing which I have never done. I show in Paint shows and non paint in their costume classes which was a lot of fun. I have gone in as a Mexican, Chinese, Egyptain, Barbanian and a Indian with all the feathers. I have made all my costumes by hand and I use the history of the Paints for them. I ride mostly Western but have done some English but I not sure of myself riding that form. I guess you would say that if I get in trouble I will grab for the horn. Everyone have a good day and stay safe.
