About Me

we should be friends


A press kit, with formal bios as well as book covers, author photos, an instant interview, and book information is available HERE.


Hi there!

I’m Jackson Pearce, and I write books for young adult and middle grade readers. You can find out more about them HERE, but the gist is: Fairytale retellings! Scandalous contemporaries! Spy stories! Magical creatures! And more!

I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and am sort of a snob about it because I think it’s the best city in the world. Before becoming an author, I was an obituaries writer, a biker bar waitress, and a receptionist. I auditioned for the circus once, but didn’t make it. I got my degree from the University of Georgia, where I majored in English and minored in Philosophy.

When I’m not writing, I’m reading, or frolicking with my pets (one fat cat and one small dog), or coaching winterguard and colorguard (band geek for life), or breaking things (except bones– I’ve never broken a bone).
